An Incredible DVD
Dale E. Wynn | 02/06/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Jay Ungar is a fiddler of the highest calliber. When he teaches, he does it in a very clear manner and does not reflect any arrogance. If you follow his instructions to the letter, you will find you are able to play the tunes in a very effective manner. This is a superb choice for anyone serious about learning to play fiddle."
Worth a look

"This is a good instructional video. Its probably more a lesson in Jay's style and technique than anything else, but it has a lot of good tips for dressing up melodies. I think its definitely worth getting if you're a fiddler. My bluegrass fiddle teacher is friends with Jay and Molly. She originally started out with classical training as a child so she's very picky about technique. She says Jay dosen't have the best technique she's ever seen, but it works for him. She's probably right too, but still he has some really good tips for fiddling."
Great teacher

"I'm delighted with this DVD and have viewed it many times.
I play along with the instructor and have learned lessons that will help me in other fiddle songs.
I recommend this to anyone looking for a great teacher and some great lessons."
