Accidental Harmonization

Posted by FiddlerFaddler on Saturday, October 18, 2008

I posted a fiddle duet version of Big Scioty featuring the venerable Bruce Sedloff (bsed here at FHO) and Yours Truly.  We played our respective versions at a jam in July and - surprise! - they harmonized nicely.  It's not twin fiddling because it doesn't feature tight harmonies throughout.  It's not seconding, where the second fiddler plays a rhythmic pattern of two notes as an accompaniment.  It is a somewhat counterpuntal harmonization of two different versions of Big Scioty.  There is a bar or two where we are in unison, but it harmonizes everywhere else.  See the notes posted with the tune for more information.
