Peghead Nation, Roots Music Instruction Site Launches

Fairfax, Calif. — Peghead Nation, a new website for roots music instruction, gear information and news is now live and serving players of mandolin, guitar, banjo, dobro, fiddle, and ukulele.

With 15 courses of streaming HD video instruction, roots musicians learn to play their favorite instruments with some of the finest players and instructors in the business.

Peghead Nation faculty members perform on stages all over the world in concert and as private instructors and workshop leaders. Now, students can learn from them online as they teach great tunes and songs, and carefully explain the techniques that will make players sound their best.

Peghead Nation hosts beginning-level courses in mandolin, guitar, banjo, fiddle, ukulele, and dobro intended for students who are just starting out.

With Peghead Nation's more advanced Courses, experienced players will find new challenges and can easily dive into a different style or pick up another instrument. For those who need help deciding where to focus, Peghead Nation offers sample lessons from each Course.

In the Instruments & Gear section users find demos of noteworthy new and vintage instruments, personal stories from our instructors about the gear they use, and information about the latest accessories and amplification equipment.

There's also coverage of latest roots album releases, tours, and other news in our News & Reviews and Featured Videos blogs; and great content from instrument and accessory manufacturers, bands, and other entities in a Peghead Partners Blog.
