The violin can be used to accompany old time country songs with startlingly beautiful results. On this DVD, Bruce Molsky shows you how to accompany Old Time songs and ballads, and achieve distinctively rich and compelling harmonies in a musical interaction between your fiddle and your voice.

Bruce covers all the basics, starting with simple exercises to develop your ear and tune your singing to the pitches of the fiddle. He shows the most common chords for folk songs and how to use your instrument to harmonize with the sung melody. Then he gets you playing and singing along with him on the lively Pig In A Pen.

During the course of this ninety-five minute lesson, you'll learn to accompany songs using a variety of tunings, with detailed instruction in rhythmic effects, chord movement, harmonic variations, syncopated bowing patterns and other techniques to bring out the drama and excitement of your song.

Join in with Bruce as he takes you, phrase-by-phrase, through old time classics Omie Wise, Stay All Night, Bachelor's Hall, June Apple and I Truly Understand.

Includes a booklet with the music featured on the DVD.

Early days of learning for me but already playing some tunes. Excellent DVD for those who have learnt a little of the basics. Recommend Jim Wood's "Fiddle for the Absolute Beginner" to start with though.

Rating Review
Customer Rating This really suits me as I am learning to harmonise and play chords at music sessions. As well as the obvious which is to sing while you play, a tricky thing when you play fiddle. I would have liked a few more pieces on the dvd though.
