VideoAbout the Lessons

1. Demo on Fiddle Vi plays completely through this slow sweet waltz.
2. Introduction Vi begins by giving a little of the history behind this waltz included on his Fiddle Whamdiddle albumn, Old School Old-Time.
3. A Part, Phrase 1 Part A repeats the same pattern three times, stretching out the tones the last time.
4. A Part, Phrase 2 & Rhythm Explanation Here Vi goes through the next phrase, pointing out that the rhythm is consistent in both phrases, exactly the same. We play through the A Part two times.
5. B Part The B part always starts with a triplet, which can be slurred to give a smooth sound, or it can be bowed, which gives a little pop to the effect. Vi prefers to slur the notes, because this is a waltz.
6. B Part Variations Vi introduces variations, one of which is to end by playing triiplets all the way down to the tonic tone.
7. All the Way Through Here Vi demonstrates how to mix up the variations and create interest in your arrangement.

Old-Time by Fiddle Whamdiddle

 

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.
