A Fiddle Tune and a Variation: Gold Rush

Cost: $50 for two one-hour classes

Online zoom classes taught by Andy Hatfield

Wednesdays, September 21st and 28th, 2022. 8:00PM Eastern



In the first class we will learn a version of “Gold Rush” that you can play by yourself or in a jam session. In the second session, we will walk through a variation or two that you can use to keep the song going! This class is interactive–you can play along with your mic off, and ask questions


After each class, you’ll get a pdf tab of the basic melody and final arrangement, and access to a video performance of the song. I will also post a video of the 1 hr zoom meeting, and a brief recap.



Bluegrass Guitar Technique and Idea Builder

Cost: $30 for three 45 minute practice sessions

Online Zoom practice sessions taught by Andy Hatfield

Wednesdays, September 7th, 21st, and 28th, 2022 – 9:00 PM Eastern



Here’s a class I’ve wanted to do for awhile – a weekly practice session for people learning bluegrass guitar. You’ll learn what to practice to become a better flatpicker. Rather than just doing exercises for the sake of exercises, everything we practice is musical and can be applied in some way to flatpicking and bluegrass guitar playing. The goal is to train the hands, the mind, and the ears all at the same time. Practicing like this isn’t necessarily learning song, but it makes learning songs much easier.


Join us for this live weekly 45 minute online flatpicking guitar class. Bring a guitar and a flatpick. For those interested in learning good flatpicking technique and ideas.
