    - Improv Bluegrass Theory works for Guitar Mandolin Fiddle etc

    - Beginner Mandolin Lessons - LEARN MANDOLIN FROM SCRATCH

    - MASTER MANDOLIN COURSE - Intermediate and Advanced Mandolin

    Let me know when you can.

    I have no idea who Chuck Millar is or how popular his Udemy course is, this is the first I’ve heard of it. Maybe someone who is more in the know will respond.

    I've done a couple of different Udemy courses in the past and they're ok, but they do tend to be quite slow. A cynic might suggest that they don't have that much content so they just pad it out, but if you've got the time to sit through it then I'd suggest starting with the first one and see how it works for you. The ones I did were at least quite thorough.
    I play:
    * Saltarelle Bourroche chromatic button accordion
    * Ozark 2240 Mandolin
    In my spare time I run https://www.mudchutney.co.uk selling folk music and celtic themed t-shirts, hoodies etc.

    www.artistworks.com
    Mike Marshall is an excellent teacher, and the courses here are very useful.

    www.Pegheadnation.com
    There are a variety of courses here, from a variety of teachers.
    Good stuff generally.

    I enjoyed the lessons by Sam Bush, Mike Marshall (especially the arpeggio workout), and the Bill Monroe tape.

    I tried the Improv Bluegrass course. It was easy to follow and was basically exercises, based on scales to help you learn the fret-board and create solos. Not a bad course but not a game changer.

    Does anyone who has used both Artistworks and Peghead Nation have a preference which is better?

    You could check Don Julia’s site, Mandolins Heal the World. There’s Beginners Corner and much more when you absorbed some of the basics.
