Publisher: Homespun
Artist: Jay Ungar
Format: Books | Instrumental Tutor
Learn to create the lilting, haunting sounds that linger in the heart long after the last fiddle note is ounded. Jay Ungar helps intermediate level players bring beautiful traditional and contemporary tunes to life by explaining his fiddle techniques in note-for-note detail.

All fiddlers will benefit from Jay's inventive use of slides, rolls, smears, vibrato and special bowing techniques, and will learn how subtle changes in tone and rhythm can create interest and excitement. Drone and double stop harmonies, as well as changes in pulse, volume and intensity, will add drama to a tune, while ornaments, slides and grace notes turn it into a distinctive and compelling composition.
