I discovered a phenomenal violinist one late night while watching TBN. A young man by the name of David Klinkenger was the guest artist that particular night. I really enjoyed hearing him play, it was beautiful and inspiring to me.

After watching David on TBN I wanted to know more about him and how I could get his music,so I went online and found a great video of his testimony and how he started playing. He is an amazing artist with a wonderful testimony of how great God is and how He can use us.  David Klinkenberg is truly anointed.

 

Here is the video so you can go check him out

 

 

Hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

Very nice and unique!

I don't mean to bump your thread but I thought you might enjoy my YouTube below.  This boy is basically unknown except in his neighborhood.  He is pure amateur.  This is his first appearance to an audience of 1000's via satelite.  His brother is playing piano. 
This has to be one of my very favorite surprise stage performances, bar none and that opinion has nothing at all to do with religious motives.  The kid is just phenomenal !!!!   (he really know about intonation!)

Ok, Ok, I have to share too.

I enjoy watching rather simple performances (ie ones that I know I could have a hope of recreating) and this one is one of them. I love the simple beauty of this. I think I even hear crickets in the background. Just feels like an evening on the porch. Love how she slides. Sigh.

It may seem like an evening on the porch because she is making it look that way .  It ain't that easy.  It takes a polished artist to play like that, back porch or not.

Gee, now I'm hooked BUT, maybe I noticed something.  The Lady often chooses to shift, even for one note, rather than change strings ….. or, is it my imagination ?  duncecap   

Gotta giv'er 10 for a text book right arm !  And just the RIGHT amount of vibrato !

Agreed. She's a very polished artist and this has not come without work. I LOVE their videos!! But what I mean is….it's simple enough that I can figure out the slides and double stops and play it. I enjoy watching her to pick up ideas because it inspires me, rather than frustrates me. This video below - also amazing – but I stand no chance of ever being able to do this. Like, I can't even fathom what notes he's playing at :23 or :52 or how he came up with them. Just does not compute in my brain. Could watch him all day; could never recreate.

Yes, I know what you mean when a video you like is also within reach.

On the last video I THINK (maybe) 23 and 52 are not much more than open arpeggios (and not really appropriate).

Ha ha, I was kind of wondering if they were even "right" and thinking perhaps that's why I can't discern what he's playing. I still enjoy seeing him though.

 

Is there a good arpeggio book out there? I want to be able to accurately throw this kind of stuff into my playing too. I probably have some if I look....from high school.

 

Oh, do I have to make a trip to the attic?

Help might be closer than you think.

Have you looked over Fiddlerman's Dorian jazz scales ? (his sheet music section)

I spent some time with them and began to make some sense but I have other kinds of musical pursuits.

They are finger patterns that he has created and reuses over and over. They are lot's of fun and easier than you may think. Once you establish a good finger pattern like this one you can do it up and down the fiddle on different strings depending on the key and as long as your fingers are fast enough, speed will not be an issue. I haven't had much time to do videos this week and traveling to Montana on Wednesday for one week. Won't have a fiddle with me but I have plans on several improv videos upon my return.

Oh. Wow. You're right. They are patterns. And he's actually doing the same one several times, isn't he?  LOL. Nice. Obtainable. Thank you. I was so blinded by the slides and other embellishments that I was lost.
