Check Niccolò Paganini, Eugène Ysaÿe, Pablo de Sarasate

to name a few.

Hi Fiddlerman


Thank you Fiddlerman for your reply



I Have viewed...  WGBH Music: Tai Murray plays Eugene Ysaye's Violi…:


At minutes.... 11.37... Tia produces some Fantastic Fast & Powerful Bow Strokes.

Are these in the Score... Or a Cadenza.


Unfortunately.. I have NOT Been able yet to download the.music score..

 As download errors court from source 



And IMSLP Only show...Viola Transcript.



Country Fiddle... I came across an AWESOME... Country fiddle duet...


Copeland Hoedown arranged for 2 Violins... It has most ...if not ALL ....the traditional Country Fiddle Style Techniques... And is for 2 Violins who are virtuous on the Violin.

To BillyG

Thank you for your reply.  I am glad you like the ..."Awesomeness in the UTUBE Links"  I provided.


With regard to your statement... That you are at 1/10 of their ability.  A Japanese Training Mantras says... >>>TAKE “Small Steps” to achieve your larger goals (Violin Goals).
