You Can be a FiddleStar

I post things about fiddling. And how we can all be better at it.

<p>I mean, we think it was a good idea… Right? @clawhammerist #oldtime #texasstyle #tenorguitar #swing #fiddle #banjo #fiddlebanjo  (at Root Note Studios)</p>

<p>Today, phase two. Swing chords and tenor guitar on an old time fiddle/banjo record. It’s a new genre of music you didn’t even know you wanted. You’re welcome. @clawhammerist #fiddlebanjo #tenorguitar #texasstyle #oldtime  (at Root Note Studios)</p>

<p>And then of course there were these two in charge of Musical Petting Zoo. One of them appears to be super helpful. One of them is more about enthusiasm. #ukulele #fordcommunityday #cmhof  (at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum)</p>

<p>Just one half of one of the FOUR guitar classes I taught today at the Country Music HOF and Museum. They made me proud! Thanks to Ford Motor Co. Fund for making this program possible today. What a blast! #threechordsandthetruth #weonlyhadtimefortwochords (at Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum)</p>

I am excited to embark on a new chapter of my working life - I recently gave my notice to the Pam Tillis organization and will no longer be touring with her or Lorrie Morgan (on their awesome Grits and Glamour Tour). I must admit, I'm sad to be leaving. It's been an incredible four years and I have learned so much. Thanks to Pam, her amazing husband/manager Matt Spicher, and my bandmates, especially the lovely and talented Mary Sue Englund, with whom I spent more time over the last few years than I did with my husband. And I wouldn't trade a minute of it...
