Just came across this clip of some session Cajun, with one fiddle being played as a percussion instrument, and I thought I'd share it, and see what people had to say, Never seen it done quite this way, but it might be worth playing around with it.

Looking around for more examples of strummed fiddle I came across this Traditional Fiddle Music of the Ozarks:

"A couple of the tunes feature fiddle strumming or plucking - Arkansas Hop, played by Howe Teague has him strumming on the fiddle strings like a guitar, very unusual." (Here's a page with the late Howe Teague playing a version of Arkansas Traveller, but using a bow rather than strumming.)

Oh, anytime there is a fiddle in a country band, it is likely to be playing rhythm when it is not being featured for a verse or chorus on lead. Hardi could tell you the name of that style of bowing.

I think it's delightful. There are already two fiddlers doing melody, so the third does something else.

Oh yes, I've done that. Pretend the back was a bodhran, strum like that and the standard right or left hand pizz.
