Just found this great little list - "Definitions of fiddle styles and tunes" (biteyourownelbow). 

Fiddling Styles and Types of Tunes

https://i.pinimg.com/originals/c0/a4/6f/c0a46f4a2d6370d2ed9512536ce19823.jpg

 

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: 

  1. Pop 
  2. House 
  3. Hip Hop
  4. Classical 
  5. Video Game 

5 Different Musical Genres On The Violin

...cleared up some questions I had!
