      Homespun Learn To Play Irish Fiddle Lesson One (DVD) (943094)
Availability:  


Achieve that traditional Irish sound with this instructional fiddling DVD.

This DVD course in traditional Irish fiddling covers rhythmic devices and other variations, including grace notes, ornaments, rolls, and double-stops.

Level 2—Near-Beginner: Instructor assumes that you have not been playing very long, but know the basics. The material is still at a very easy level, but certain elementary things are not explained.

Kevin Burke's easygoing manner and encouraging teaching style invite you into the world of authentic traditional Irish fiddle. In this superb starter lesson, he passes on his vast knowledge and experience through an in-depth study of some of his favorite tunes, styles and techniques.

Kevin understands the needs of the learning fiddler, and he conveys his ideas with clarity and simplicity. Focusing on Irish polkas, slides and jigs, he teaches the basic tune, along with several variations, explaining the rhythmic devices that distinguish each dance form. He then shows you the grace notes, rolls, double-stops and other ornaments that make this music so distinctive, and that keep it in the true Irish tradition.

By the end of this first lesson you'll be playing Saddle the Pony, The Connaughtman's Rambles, The King of the Fairies, Bill Sullivan's Polka, Johnny Leary's Slide, Micho Russell's Slide and more. Best of all, you'll have gained a solid foundation that will enable you to play this beloved music with real flair and authority.
