      I got the first part OK but will be waiting for the video to learn the second part. I found a copy of sheet music BUT it is obviously another arrangement. I did hear the Luthor Strong version on YouTube. Thanks for providing these workshops. I'll be looking for the next one.

      Fun workshop, especially liked learn the subtle drone string bowing accent technique and the little grace note details that I have a hard time picking up just listening.

      Hi Rayna - The workshop was great! I loved the tune you chose and it was taught in a way that I could easily follow. Am looking forward to working on it some more it when it's posted on your website. Thanks for a great workshop! I will definitely tune in again next time!

      The workshop was great! That buttery bowing is a long ways away for me as a beginner but it's inspiring to watch. Breaking down each part of tune was super helpful! I would absolutely tune in to future workshops. Would love to do some cross a or g tune!

      I would have liked to play through the tune a few more times, felt like too much of the session was q&a. Still really enjoyed it but just wasn't able to nail down the tune like I would have liked, hope it's posted soon.

      What was your favorite part of the performance? It was great to listen to her play and very helpful when she broke it all down into parts.
