G'day, g'day, everyone!
Hope yer feeling good and WELCOME to The Tune Room 🙂
I’m Tim Chaisson, a touring musician + songwriter (The East Pointers) from Prince Edward Island, Canada (on the East Coast of Canada, if you’re not familiar). It’s so rich in trad + folk music here — especially Celtic Fiddle — and I'm here to share a bit of that with you!
I get asked quite often about fiddle workshops and it’s quite rare I actually get a chance to do ‘em anymore. So here in The Tune Room, I’ll be posting BI-WEEKLY video tutorials focussing on tunes from home + my favourites from across the globe (learning melody by ear, bowing, embellishments, etc). If you’re not confident with your ear, don’t fret! I’ll have accompanying sheet music + tutorial notes breaking down the tune visually. I also have Practice Tracks that you can set to your desired tempo — I’m your accompanist (you can isolate fiddle, guitar or have both)!
After each tutorial, I have a mini guitar accompaniment lesson - focussing on that tune (strumming patterns, chord structure, etc).
The Tune Room is also a COMMUNITY! I want to connect with you (and connect you with other players) so I’ve started hosting a monthly online Session (usually the 1st Saturday of every month at 7pm ADT). Grab yer fiddle, a bevy and hop on for a wee chat, tune or just a listen!
Yer the best.
