        Little to none....
        The Fiddle played by Pete Cooper is strictly "classical" ! This guy is not a Folk Fiddler at all. Hes a straight Musician and thats the way he approaches everything...hence he never finds the "essence" of the tune behind the Notes...its all straight by the books for him. Eastern European traditional Music is not like that at all.
