That was great! Wish I could fiddle like that! I played classical violin when I was young and just can't get that folk sound down. Guess I should try playing along with the videos and see if that helps.

Lisa - I like your comments about "The Look". Now I have been playing and singing with Richard and Kathy for about 15 months we have developed our own ways of keeping in sync, including ways to gently signal if one of us is out of tune or tempo. It is all part of the dynamics that grow when people regularly play together. At an old time fiddle session we sometimes to and listen to, the agreed signal is the raising of the left foot!

Thanks you guys.The camera was a little shaky, but Steve's wife had never shot a video before.Right before the end, at 5:06 minutes, you can see Brian and I exchange 'The Look' which means we are agreeing to end the tune. And as soon as we exchange that, you can see Brian shoot 'The Look' very quickly over to Steve, who also gets the message. lol! People are always asking us how on earth we know when to all stop playing at the same time. They miss the little signals. This particular A modal tune has a lot of open drone strings in it, which as you can imagine I especially love.

This is really fine. Enjoyed the close-ups of your clawhammer playing, especially.

I love this tune, Lisa! There's nothing like a great old-time fiddle tune.Got my dulcimer on my lap now, tuned to EAA, and was playing a rhythm with y'all. Thanks for posting this!

Lisa you are one talented lady. Brian and Steve aren't half bad either. Was your playing what you would call claw-hammer playing? Thanks for sharing. Grin.gif
