Interesting instructional video.  The opening is spot on and comical so had to share.. I know how the left character feels... She concentrates mostly on Scandinavian folk but this applies to most fiddle type folk stuff.

@GregW 

This is fantastic! I am very pleased you posted this. This is applicable to just any instrument in this forum. It just might help me with my cello pieces. I always Iook for YouTube videos of our songs so that I can get the rhythm and sound of it and it makes it so much easier. Now I know how to apply what I am hearing to my sheet music. Not exactly what she was getting at, but will help me in that way. It might make it a more simplified way to mark my music, too.

It will also help me learn a tune on my Fiddle Dee Dee, because I am not taking lessons for that right now. 

Actually, a few months ago I played “Puff The Magic Dragon” on my viola for my brother. I recorded myself and sent him the video. He loved it. That was done from my knowing the song. I have been playing around with “Cruel War” on my violin. Would prefer to do “Where Have All the Flowers Gone”, but “Cruel War” keeps coming into my mind instead! LOL 

Point being, this technique will help me with that, too. I have the CD’s with those songs but listen to the songs as a whole and not as blocks. Blocks will make it better.

This was a tremendous find from you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you.thanks_much_smiley_gif

You get a trophy, at least from me. I need all the help I can get and this was immense.

Good video. Thanks, Greg. I just wrote a post on my blog this morning about Learning a Fiddle Tune by Ear. Added this video as a resource on my blog as well.

@cid  yup..She has some great videos.  Subscribe and like her channel!  She does some good work.  Her video on alternate tunings showed up on my youtube yesterday and I started going through some of her other postings and found this.
