September 2018 Fiddle Class

Hi you all,

We’re having our fiddle class on Saturday. The tune Possum Up A Gumstump is going to be introduced. I learned it a long time ago and really like it. There is a fun part in the second half where you hold down the third finger on the D string and hammer down some notes on the A string to create a lot of excitement.

Hope you enjoy,
Joe
