Win a Fiddle DVD!
Enter our free drawing for your chance to win a new DVD, John Showman's "Fiddle Shuffle and Groove"
from Woodhall Music! Three winners will be chosen!
On this DVD, John Showman teaches fiddle players how to get more
tone and groove into their playing by going beyond one-note-per-bow
bowing. Beginning with a detailed review of proper and relaxed bowing
technique, John then shows how to add varied bowing moves, such as
shuffling, syncopation, double stops and free-form bowing, to help the
player achieve improved "feel" and "groovy-ness."
