Let me just say that I firmly believe that every old-time fiddler needs to own this. I have gained so much knowledge from this instructional video and it has also helped me shape the way I approach fiddling. John is a phonomenal teacher and is very articulate in the way he expresses his ideas. He explains them in a way that almost anyone can understand and is very good at showing examples of what he is trying to get across. Overall this is an extremely GREAT investment and I would highly recommend it to any fiddler. I would also suggest you purchase the following recordings for further studying of what John is teaching, "Wild Hog in the Red Brush," Gene Goforth's album "Emminence Breakdown," "Speed of the Old Longbow" and "Hamilton Ironworks."
