I found the Norwegian equivalent of *FREE* Fiddlevideo Tutorials (Woo Hoo)! 



Not much info in the video descriptions - AND YOU DON'T NEED TO KNOW MORE TO LEARN THESE!  You will learn the ORNAMENTS, RHYTHM & BOWING from these videos!!!  

BUT, if you are interested in the tune type & it isn't in the description - keep an ear open for the likes of 'Vals', 'Pols' (a quick Polska) some bars uneven, others are even & 'Springar' (or Springleik) is an uneven Vals, a type of Polska, but where the unevenness falls depends on the region - all are ¾ time.  'Gangar', 'Rudl' & 'Reinlender' (schottis) will have 2 beats per measure - ²/₄ time, sometimes ⁶/₈ time. 

Tunes are repeated, but not slowed down - slow down in the video settings.


Here's a beautiful Gangar! 


Here's a Pols that is GREAT for practicing trills - especially on the 4th finger!
