Wow!  I've been a long-time fan of Skaggs' mandolin playing, and I knew he played the fiddle too.  But I had never seen him do THAT on a fiddle.  I don't think I've seen anyone else do something like that either.  Wild!

Bobby Hicks, the banjo player in that video, could give him all the advice he would need. At that time, he was the regular fiddler in the band.

Lots of talent in that band. Ricky wasn't a bad fiddler himself back then.
