The Fiddle According To Vassar

Vassar Clements


Hal Leonard / Homespun Tapes

An educational video in which Vassar Clements demonstrates how "to apply blues and jazz influences to transform ordinary fiddle sounds into extraordinary ones."

"Vassar explores more than a dozen of his classic licks, showing how he uses slides, chromatics, double and triple-stops, slurs and boogie-woogie patterns to enhance a variety of tunes. You'll learn some of his best-known original and traditional fiddle breaks and how he uses his earliest influences—blues and jazz—to transform ordinary bluegrass/country fiddle sounds into extraordinary ones."
