Check out the 2021 Fiddlerman “White Christmas” Group Project.
Don't normally get to see a Stradivarius being demonstrated and compared to a modern fiddle on a guys kitchen table.
Go to 3:30 if you don't want to view the entire clip, all 3 parts are worth watching if you have a few free minutes.
Master the Frog and you have mastered the bow.
Aly Bain is one of my favorites. One of the great things after I bought my fiddle was learning about and hearing these players for the first time. I have several tracks from the transatlantic sessions. Bonapartes retreat is my favorite and big scioty with him and jay ungar. It was encouraging to hear that even he had the bow shakes. Have you ever been at a jam or something and have to start a tune and the bow shaking so bad the notes are just not there. So embarrasing which makes it worse..lol. Great video..more somewhere?
