So in 2020 I became the Arizona state Trick and Fancy Champion, By doing this:

I played boil them cabbage normally.
Then I played it on my lap.
Then I played it behind my back.
Then I played it with my bow between the knees.

And, I won.
I must note that i was inspired by Corrine Garey, Sister of former state champion Jess Barry.

So I tried it again this year.....
But I added laying down on my back with two chairs...
Which Required four people to help.
One person playing guitar, one person holding a mic, and one person for each chair.
And although I didn't win this year, I still made second place, and I had fun, so that's all that matters.

Share your trick and fancy stories!

Well ... I once knew a top-notch fiddler who, surprise-surprise, habitually drank to excess. There was a story of him one time stumbling over the edge of the stage while fiddling, and falling to the floor - but never missing a note. Does that qualify?

That reminds me, my 85 year old buddy plays Listen to the Mockingbird with all the bird calls. I really should record that for posterity.
