I looked up this guy because he has a couple good violin books with Mel Bay.  Really makes you appreciate the "folk" musicians who command the violin, AKA "fiddle".

He can dance too.  Look out, Linda Sterling.

nice. I was watching him play, then I started looking at his fiddle. Look at the first video from about the 5 second mark. His bridge looks really short and flat. The strings also look unusually wide spaced, but its hard to see where they lay on the fingerboard.

Craig is awesome. I particularly like this one.

Short story about Craig. I was looking for a particular song and couldn't find it, so one day while I was at my luthier shop, I called Craig on the phone. Spoke with him in person and he told me where to get the sheet for, "Yellow Rose Waltz"

Anyway, here's the song I like a lot by him.

@fiddlinsteudel does a wonderful version of Maiden's Prayer.  I also like Ian Walsh's version.  Funny this should come up today because I had a dream about it last night.  I had been watching videos of it and playing around with it a tiny bit.

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

Thanks for all these videos!!  Awesome.  See that technique where he sort of flicks his wrist - I need to learn that!!

I also need to learn that ending of Fire on the Mountain.  Anyone know the notes to that ending?

Everyone at jam gets so tickled when I play Soldier's Joy and end with shave and a haircut 2 bits.  BUT that ending can not be added to every song and I have yet to master raising my foot!!  You know that chewing gum and walking at the same time issue!!

I have been watching @fiddlinsteudel like a stalker as I am learning Maiden's Prayer at the moment!!  Maiden's Prayer = a cool way to begin learning 3rd position.

I will have to check out Ian Walsh's version.
