Who's Gonna Talk to Dinah-Fiddle (AEAE: key of A)

0 ratings

This super tune sounds great in cross A – AEAE. If you haven’t played in cross-A, this is a fantastic tune to take the plunge! I love the F#m chord in this one. To navigate the string crossing, we use a slur-2 bow rock pattern. We also use some 3-1 slur patterns.

The Sandbridge Old-time Fiddle Video Project

For the last few years, I have run a 3.5-day old-time fiddle retreat for intermediate level players in Sandbridge VA – The Sandbridge Old-Time Fiddle Retreat. https://www.sandbridgedulcimer.com/the-sandbridge-fiddle-retreat We hold the workshop in a couple of beautiful oceanfront houses. We focus on a variety of bowing systems to create a solid groove, left-hand techniques (chording, slides, ornaments, 4th finger unisons etc), altered tunings, chord theory and more. For all the tunes, we prepare summary videos and provide written transcriptions with all bowings and notation of the left-hand techniques. I am pleased to now make many of these recordings available for everyone. The scope of material presented for each tune is comparable to several private lessons.

Topics covered in most of the videos include the following:

Basic melody broken down phrase by phrase

Bowings for all phrases

Bowing ideas include 3-1 bowing, Nashville shuffle, bow pulses, ghost bows, bow rocks

Rationale for bowing

Altered tunings include ADAE, ADAD, AEAE, AEAC#

Description of all chording

Left-hand techniques

Discussion of the chord progression


Written transcriptions with bowings and chords

Practice tracks along with a play-through of the full tune
