Just found this great little list - "Definitions of fiddle styles and tunes" (biteyourownelbow).
I haven't looked them all over, yet - but hope these might help clarify a few things for anyone interested. 😊
What's 'Popular' nowadays?
This is really 'Violin' genres, not 'Fiddle' - but hey, they're still all the same instrument!
Found a wonderful young Violinist, Alan Milan (ItsAMoney), who gives his light-hearted take on playing these 5 genres on the violin:
- Hip Hop
- Video Game
...cleared up some questions I had!
