Is there a video with this ? All I got was a blank screen.

That was one of the first tunes I learned. Love it! cheers.

But seems to me it was called Bile them cabbage down. I know that doesn't make sense but I could swear that's what my book said.

Now I gotta dig through my old fiddle books to find out. dazed Wont be abel to sleep til I do.

Anyway its alot of fun to play and you can go on and on and on and on.thumbs-up

Purely from the power of suggestion, I kept hearing "up kitty, down kitty" as you played...

Barry, I notice the way you hold a bow, Is that common to fiddle or just the way you feel comfortatle playing?

 

Thank you for this video.  Where I live people play a lot of fiddle but I haven't gotten into it really, maybe I should.

Thanks for the post Barry. I remember that shuffle from a Mel Bay book when I was young. I think that they called it "Bile em Cabbage Down". One of the few that I remember.

I'm sure a lot of members and visitors will learn this shuffle thanks to you.violin-student

Look forward to part two.

Here is the music that I jotted down ages ago and used for a string quartet version. I have 3 more parts to go with it that I will save as PDF later. It's got a few variations in it too.

Bile Em Cabbage Down.

Keep in mind, the orchestra version is played slightly different. I have it also in essential elements and its played with a bit different feel.

I like the country feel. I don't like hearing classical players play this stuff with vibrato and too much perfection. Needs to have that special folk music feeling. Someday I hope to conquer the feeling. thumbs-up I won a bluegrass competition when I was 11 in Palm Beach County but I liked the way everyone else played much better. I think they gave me first place because I was a little squirt playing fast and clean. They should have tossed me out of there instead.

A piece called Rubber Doll Rag and the other one I can play it, sing it, write it on paper but I don't remember the name. LOL

Starts with an eighth note pick-up open E and continues with only 16th notes. I'll try to find that one in my music collection. Apparantly I played it at 100MPH... My parent said I was finished right after I got up there and they had never heard me play anything that fast before.

I seem to be inept today. Can't post a link or embed. Anyway, I bet it was "The Devil's Dream."

(yay, I think I fixed it)
