Hi Fiddlerman folks. I'm new around here. I've started playing violin at a young age, took a break to learn guitar, and then after years of dragging a dusty violin case around with me I took up bluegrass fiddle and reinvigorated my enjoyment of playing the violin.
Anyway, I've been trying to compile videos together on how to play particular fiddle tunes for folks and I couldn't find a slow version of Old Dangerfield that people could learn from. So I setup my digital camera and tried to video myself playing a slow version. Man it's harder than one would think. 1. Playing slower gives you lots of time to overthink notes/bowing and make mistakes. 2. Playing in front of a video camera certainly adds some pressure 3. I tried to fill the frame with just the important parts a fiddler would want to see (left hand and bowing), but I found myself slowly migrating out of the frame, or I would drop my left hand and half my fingers would be out of frame. LOL. Anyway this is the final version I settled on that seemed "good enough". Hope you enjoy it.
