Fiddler Stacy Phillips demonstrates the rudiments of bluegrass fiddle technique in this instructional video, which is designed for both basic players and seasoned musicians who are best versed in other musical styles. Phillips demonstrates the essential technical tools used in bluegrass fiddling, such as slurs, slides, double stops, and special bowing patterns, as well as traditional violin solos and the building blocks behind the styles of such fiddling greats as Benny Martin, Chubby Wise, and Kenny Baker. Phillips also demonstrates how to play several classic traditional numbers in Bluegrass Fiddle Boot Camp, as well as how to "cheat" your way through unfamiliar tunes during a jam session.
