Here's a project to inspire you - David Grubb from Scotland, is working his way through a fiddle tune every day for a year, posting the videos on YouTube for all to see. He's even taking requests if you would like to have him play a Celtic/folk tune and post it.

 

If you're one of those lucky fiddlers who learns by ear, here's a list of many of the songs he's recorded so far. That should keep anyone busy learning for a long time!

The lad can't be normal smile

I think his best feat is to be able to play anything on the list on demand.  That's a lot of music. 

However, I must add that I have entirely memorized several major scales in different keys dancing

Yay, Oliver! cheerleader

 

It looks to me like he's reading music in many of the videos. Being a fiddler in a Celtic band would tend to expand one's repertoire, I would think...

While his list is impressive by any account, I must say that I am really humbled when I read the repertoire of small groups that hire out for weddings.  Their list may be only several dozen songs but some are tricky classical works !!

I wonder if it's fun to play with such ease but I guess I'll know when if get there …. if ever violin-student
