Swedish Fiddle Tunes for Guitar

$25 ($24 members) · 90 minutes · Single meeting

Fiddle tunes don’t always have to be played on the fiddle! Join Patrik Ahlberg, originally from Sweden, for this special workshop exploring traditional Swedish fiddle tunes on the guitar. Patrick will teach a few tunes which will use an open guitar tuning (DADGAD). Techniques such as flatpicking, legato, hammer-on’s and pull-off’s, string bending and mimicking fiddle ornaments will be explored to bring a more lyrical and song-like approach to these tunes.


Intermediate and advanced guitar.

Special Info

Comfortable learning by ear and familiarity with using a pick. Tune your guitar to DADGAD ahead of time if you can. Bring a recording device.
