That was awesome. I'm a newbie violin player, 6 weeks, and still awkward coordination, but manage to play about a dozen tunes, but nothing like you are showing. I subscribed - gotta learn this for sure. Thanks.

Sorry dude ... there are no F C and G in the key of A. Call them F# C# and G#. If someone plays F natural it ain't gonna sound right.

so much rosin!! XD that'll ruin your fiddle's varnish, man!!
Evan Bailey it's the sound that counts. Not the look. :)

I'm a beginner and I'm just curious as to why you play the a chord first?

I also love the way you hold your bow. I know it isn't the way I am taught, buy I've seen many bluegrass players hold it this way, and obviously, it works quiet well! You play so well. How long have you been playing - since birth? I am much older than you, and I just started learning 6 months ago. I am continually amazed at how beautiful violinis!

This is the way traditional fiddle players hold their bows. In the Baroque time, they used to hold it this way as well.

Great lesson! I've been posting lessons for free too (on fiddle, guitar and mando) and just put up a Cripple Creek fiddle lessons. It's so nice to see another teacher putting lessons on YouTube. Keep up the good work!

I purchased three lessons and worth every penny. I always wanted to learn phrase by phrase, but teachers never listened to me that my brain worked that way. Now i''m having so much fun. thank you Ian Walsh, a great teacher and player.

Excellent teacher. Ian's put a lot of thought into breaking down the tunes into basic phrases and he finds a simple way to explain how to play the tunes. All of his videos are top notch.

dude this guy sounds like ben chan when you dont watch the video when it first starts

A lot of bluegrass fiddlers choke up on the bow like that. It's not kosher in the classical sense, but it works.

Your right hand position is trerible.. realy bat... You play very good but if you have a better position you will play a lot better...
