Had another gig with my band Colonels of Truth, and I recorded it with my iphone. The sound was pretty good, but the lighting got blown out so the guitarist's face and shirt are all over exposed ....
I've been trying, but not very successful. Here's one attempt at it. How about you Pierre? The other thing with singing is being able to sing a improvised lead, like jazz soloists do ... how do you practice that, just slowly singing lines and trying to play the same thing?
I've seen/heard some really amazing voice fiddle harmony. Bruce Molsky is an amazing master of singing and playing the fiddle. Nicky Spanders with Steep Canyon Rangers does some cool train harmony things ... I just need to practice more at it.
This is where I want to get with that song:
I also haven't figure out all the cool double stops that Tim is using as harmony ...
That's a good question, I don't think so since he's not using a lot of open drones, but I never think of alternate tunings. I just don't play in alternate tunings so that never comes to mind.
It is cool seeing all sorts of different styles, bow holds, etc. The fiddle really is a versatile instrument and can be played so many different ways and sound good.

We had another gig last night at a Starbucks, here's a clip from it. Apparently I had some technical difficulties and the 3 hours I thought I recorded I only got like 20 minutes. This tune is called Forked Deer, and the version I sorta play at like 2:30 is from this site, http://www.bluegrasscollege.org/
