: A Fiddler's Guide To: Waltzes, Airs, and Haunting Melodies

Learn to play lovely, heart-rending pieces and benefit from Jay Ungar's years of experience as a top fiddler. He shows the inventive use of slides, grace notes, rolls, smears, vibrato and special bowing techniques that turn ordinary tunes into distinctive compositions. Jay teaches "Tombigbee Waltz," "Tennessee Waltz," "South Wind," "Shebeg Shemor," "Give Me Your Hand" and his Grammy-winning tune from Ken Burns' PBS Civil War series, "Ashokan Farewell."

This program is available for viewing either with a Roots Channel subscription or as a standalone purchase.
