Hi everyone,

I'm self taught on the fiddle and am looking for any recommendations for any cool sounding bluegrass type pieces to learn - something that sounds good with doublestops / slides etc. Doesn't need to be restricted to bluegrass, but love the sound of that style esp. with a lot of doublestops.

If anybody can link to good recordings on youtube or wherever that would be a bonus too :)

Many thanks

"Orange Blossom Special" would be a good one for double-stops and slides (and more). 

There are loads of recordings on Youtube.
