I am a HUGE fan of Paul Warren's. He was a great fiddler.
His son, Johnny, is quite an accomplished fiddler himself. Here is a link to one of his videos
Incidentally, the fiddle Johnny is playing is the same fiddle that Paul is playing in the video you posted. Neat, huh???

That is cool! Paul was amazing for sure, pancake wrist and all :) Makes you wonder
My sons have been learning for a year now, they started on fiddle at ages 3 and 4. They'll be head and shoulders above their dad if they decide to keep at it.

Makes you wonder about what?
Great version of "Eightth of January" from Johnny Warren and the banjo player...

I don't know if it can get much better. Oh my.

Well, it makes you wonder about all that preachin from teachers about what proper form is, yet so makes legends of the fiddle don't follow those guidelines. Then again, some would say that their greatness transcended those handicaps and they still became great despite the pancake wrists or upper arm bow chugging or stiff wrist or what-have-you.
