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 ....

Fantastic!!!
Do you ever play and sing at the same time? I know it's difficult.
As always, very entertaining. 🙂

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 tried it too. If you ask me, that was not bad at all, I really liked it. I really love that kind of music too. Reminds me of the music from, "O Brother, Where Art Thou?"
Of course playing rhythmically the same as the singing helps. The hardest is when you try to sing one part and play a different part harmonically. 🙁

Awesome performance!!! Simply amazing!

There's nothing better than a cold beer and the warm soothing sound of a violin.

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.

I also haven't figure out all the cool double stops that Tim is using as harmony ...

I wondered if he was using an alternate tuning. The sound is similar to Midnight on the Water, IMO.

BTW, I enjoyed your performance, @fiddlinsteudel !

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

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/
