  • Gardenia Waltz

    Gardenia Waltz

    Gardenia Waltz, written by Johhny Gimble, is one of the most technically challenging songs taught at fiddlevideo.com. There are some really tricky double stops all the way through this tune, which makes the tune quite interesting. Given Johhny’s writing style which involves using two notes to create the melody, this is the only song on the site which involves a single, advanced melody tutorial (it just takes too much away from the melody to teach a simple version). Casey breaks down the advanced version in this lesson module. Sign up today for a full monthly or annual subscription to take advantage of the whole lesson.
