This week we're going to jump into one of my favorite fiddle tunes, Whiskey Before Breakfast. Every flatpicker of note has played this tune, and for good reason - it's one of the best. Julian Lage and I recorded a freewheeling version of it on our record Avalon. This first week I'm teaching a fairly basic version of the tune. We will look at some thematic embellishments that are possible in the following weeks.
