  1. there is no “The Country Waltz” listed among your tunes

  2. In your video above you mention that you have a tutorial for Black Velvet Waltz. I can’t find it, Did you remove it or am I missing it/ Thanks. Great Site.

    • Hi, MrHansen. The Black Velvet Waltz fiddle lesson has been recorded already and is in the production pipeline at this point. You can see all of the un-published tunes for each instructor in this thread.

      Feel free to put in a vote for Black Velvet Waltz if you would like!
