VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Demonstration Vi begins by giving a demonstration of this waltz included on his Fiddle Whamdiddle albumn, Old School Old-Time.
2. Warm Up Here Vi shows how to warm up before we practice by playing through some two-octave arpeggios.
3. A Part Now Vi breaks down the A Part of the tune, phrase by phrase. with an interesting turnaround at the end of the 2nd phrase.
4. B Part The B part starts just like the beginning of the A part, and then it takes off with it's own melody but same rhythm.
5. Bowing & the Waltz Feel We want this to have a waltz feel with a 1-2-3 danceable beat, and the odd measures have a little bit stronger downbeat than the even measures.
6. Waltz Ornaments In this video, Vi shows us how to add some ornaments for variety and texture.
7. Adding Double Stops A double stop refers to the technique of playing two notes simultaneously on a bowed stringed instrument such a fiddle. How many times does Vi use that technique in this video?
8. All the Way Through For this last video, Vi plays all the way through the Peek-A-Boo Waltz, adding ornaments and double stops.

Fiddle Whamdiddle

Are you saying, “I know what a fiddle is but what is a whamdiddle?”  The whamdiddle is a slang name for the hammered dulcimer; “hog fiddle” is a slang name for the mountain dulcimer, both are traditional American folk instruments.  Together with the fiddle they make for a porch-picking, knee-slapping good time.
