Abstracting Fiddle Melodies for Clawhammer Banjo with Cameron DeWhitt

Fiddlers sure can play a lot of notes! Playing note-for-note with them on the banjo is possible, but you run the risk of sounding more pedantic than artful in your accompaniment. In this workshop you'll learn to interpret fiddle tunes banjoistically: which notes to leave out, how banjo ornaments differ from fiddle ornaments, and how to harness the power of old time heterophony!
