Excellent Beginner's Fiddling DVD

(5 out of 5 stars)
"This is an excellent instructional DVD for beginning fiddlers of all ages (especially adults). The DVD offers clear, step-by-step instructions to help beginners, including clear bowing and fingering instructions and a step-by-step process in learning tunes. What is also helpful is Mr. Leftwich first plays the tune, breaks it down into components, and then puts the fiddle tune back together at the end of the instructions. I am also grateful that the DVD includes sheet music for those of us who like the notation to help remember the tune"
Not really for beginner violinists or fiddle players

"I bought this video expecting to be able to learn how to play fiddle, as the description states "for beginners", but was disappointed to learn that you had to know EVERY thing about playing the violin before you could even attempt to learn these lessons. It would probably be great for someone who is just looking for a slightly different sound and bowing technique. Otherwise pretty instructive."
