VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Intro & Demonstration
Higher Octave
Vi begins by giving a demonstration of old fiddle tune included on his Fiddle Whamdiddle albumn, Old School Old-Time.
2. Demonstration
Lower Octave
VI now plays through this lively old fiddle tune again, but this time in a lower octave.
3. A Part Vi teaches this in the higher octave, and demonstrates how to drone the A string creating a bluesy pentatonic sound. He also includes a slide in this section.
4. A Part, Bowing Options Does the bow stay in a straight line, or does it dip and dive a little when you change directions?  Vi demononstrates a couple of the techniques he uses for this tune.
5. B Part This part also has a slide with your fourth finger. Vi continues to give bowing hints to help you make certain parts stand out. Note the 2nd ending for the B part is the same as the ending for the A part.
6. Whole Tune Slower Finally Vi plays thorugh the entire tune a little slower, and includes both the higher octave and the lower octave this time.

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.
