Possibly the most comprehensive DVD on the art of traditional fiddle playing! On this DVD Gina le Faux gives us an insight into the art of Traditional Fiddle playing. Gina takes us through the basics of posture before delving in such areas as bow control, articulation and ornamentation and by using well known traditional melodies she explores many of the secrets of improving your fiddle technique. Suitable for all standards of fiddler this DVD looks into: Holding the fiddle and the bow Posture and Setup Phrasing Ornamentation Rhythm Building up a tune Packed with hints, tips and inspiration you will want to watch this DVD again and again! I have known Gina for many years now, her playing has never ceased to thrill me. She is that kind of a player: her understanding of the fiddle, its place in the tradition, and the many different styles that enrich these islands are bolstered not only by an enviable technique but also by a practical knowledge of the instrument. She is a maker and repairer of fine violins. All this, as you can imagine, goes a long way towards the reasons why she is a unique teacher. Oh, and I nearly forgot, she sings and writes many a mean tune and pithy song. Give us your pleasure, Gina! Dave Swarbrick 2007
