Editorial Reviews

The eight lessons on this DVD, compiled from Homespun's incomparable library of music instruction, represent fiddle tuition at its very best. The lessons start at an easy beginner level and progressively get more challenging, providing a full range of techniques, styles, musical ideas and repertoire tunes to learning players at all levels. Each of the instructors is highly experienced and deeply knowledgeable in bluegrass and old-time genres, and address topics such as tone, intonation, bowing, rhythm, improvisation and a host of other things that will make you a better fiddler.

This was a great introduction to the music and teaching styles of several wonderful musicians. As a second year beginning fiddle student, I learned:

1. vibrato basics from Kenny Kosek, which I practiced while playing the waltz, "Southwind," as taught by Jim Wood

2. a cool bluegrass song ("Bury Me Beneath the Willow") with lots of double stops and slides

3. a Tommy Jarrell bowing pattern, from Brad Leftwich

4. and some really cool pulsing and rhythmic bowing from Bruce Molsky, on "Candy Girl"

All-in-all this was a great investment. I will probably pick up a couple more Homespun instructional DVDS (Bruce Molsky, and Brad Leftwich) after I complete the lessons in this one.

I was very excited to recieve my DVD and immediatly opened it to watch it. I love the lessons provided, It's like a sampler to see who you would enjoy learning more from, as I do believe all of the fiddlers have their own dvds out. I think this is a gread DVD for the price. your basically learning one or two songs from some of the most respected fiddlers around.

This is not for a beginner. You need to understand notation, and you have to know how to double stop. You need to know certain patterns. They have hammer on and slides...

For me, I look at this DVD as a good sampler of various fiddle teachers and styles. Each instructor is very good and all of them go slow enough to follow and give tips on how to play. It's a good DVD. I think all of the instructors have their own DVD(s) out also. So if you like a particular one, you can follow up with it. My favorite was Jay Ungar; I already had Jay Ungar's Waltzes, Airs and Haunting Melodies which is a great DVD.
