Discuss the Mandolin lesson: Devil's Dream

This is a classic fiddle tune that every picker should have under their belt! I’ve built this break to suit pickers of all levels. The first “A” and “B” parts are straight ahead melody, while the second “A” and “B” parts stretch the boundaries a bit. This way, a beginner can learn the first “A” and “B” parts and simply repeat them to play the full song, while an intermediate or advanced picker can steal some sweet licks from the second parts! Enjoy!

Who’s the fiddler in the demo?

That is John Jeansonne, fiddle player for Rascal Flatts, LeAnn Womack, and many others, who is a contest winning Cajun fiddler as well… A good dude.
