First of all apologies if this is in the wrong area or has already been discussed at length (if so I can't see it).

Right now on to the interesting bit....

I would love to know how other fiddlers are playing backings behind vocals etc. You could call this comping, rhythm playing.

I am sure there are many better ways but I am generally playing basic chords with a staccato pattern perhaps with the odd longer arco note or run thrown in. I am also playing the Darol Anger and Casey Driesen style chop (pretty badly but I try!)

What sort of chord patterns are you guys playing? Any input would be great. Thanks in advance.

Oh sorry forgot to mention I am using quite a lot of the Mark Wood violin chord techniques from his book Electrify Your Strings.
