dermod in salisbury Celtic Fiddle Instruction (24) RE: Celtic Fiddle Instruction 31 Aug 02

As your daughter already has some ability on the fiddle,the best way to sample another style is to play along with others. The BBC has a 'virtual session' on its web site which flashes up the music so you can play along. You can select from a good number of popular reels, jigs, hornpipes, slides, waltzes, etc. You can also print out the sheet music for preparatory practice. It's a great help. I discovered it from another recent mudcat thread. It's also free. It doesn't stop you buying an instructional video. The Natalie McMaster one sounds good. But this site will help your daughter come along and provide a lot of fun.
