I'm a self taught fiddler/musician that didn't get any formal training. I learned by listening to my heroes and fellow musicians and kinda connected the dots.
So you get to hang with me here for about 1 hour and I explain how you can get to understand how music is put together in this simple, easy to understand and start playing right away.
When I made this video, many years ago, I took it to my neighbor who never played fiddle in his life but always wanted to, I lent him a fiddle and said I will be back in 1 hour to see if you could play a tune and to see if this all made sense. I came back in 1 hour and he was playing a tune that I teach in this video and said how simple it was to learn. Mission accomplished. I mass marketed the video on VHS tape and then DVD and sold them for $50.
There are many fiddlers out there that play and don't have a clue as to what they are actually doing. This lesson will help them understand more and help them learn tunes faster because you get to recognize similar patterns in all tunes.
