Contact Pete for his backing tracks.  http://www.pete-hartley-violinist.co.uk/  He's also a member here, so you could PM him, if you like.

Contact Pete for his backing tracks.

Thank you, I've seen Pete's site and I've selected 10 tracks already.
Also I downloaded those tracks he uses on youtube. Great fun.

those are Hoover pipes!

fir me, its the fiddlers 3 vid of OBS.. its an omph thang ! it never fails to fill me with I have to learn that !

There is also a vid of a quartet playing da slockit light which I just adore as its the only vid of said tune on you tube where they actually get the melody right. You often find with shetland tunes that by the time they cross the atlantic the melody has been someone disturbed and the tune is therefor lost, but these guys did they're research & learned to play it correctly.

frodopogo... Gilles Apap video was great.  I sit in second violin section and I would be grinning my face off and enjoying the heck out of his performance.  He's very talented and fun!

So glad you liked it.
I bet he's inspired more than a few kids to take up violin,
and inspired others to stick with it!

I can't find my favourite video on YT at the moment.

It's a clip of Kevin Burke when he was in the Bothy Band - but it's not fiddle playing... it's him singing Mrs Gilhooley's Party!

Maybe it got pulled? I downloaded it and have it on my PC, but it'd be sad if it wasn't still up there...

My favorite youtube video is Jenny Bae doing Beethoven Virus. (a remix of Beethoven's Pathetique which appeared in a popular video game)  She's very inspiring, after I saw it I was convinced to find the dots for it.

I don't know if anyone has posted anything from her before - or if you have even heard of her.  Shes from Korea so I really don't know much about her, she doesn't write much in her profile.  But I absolutely adore her.

I think she's linked to a rather aweful "teach yourself electric violin" website I came across recently. Am awaiting more details about that.

(she needs a better backing track btw, that General MIDI rubbish is probably letting her down)

Lots of good stuff here. I love this one of Eliza Carthy fiddling and singing in a small hall, recorded on a mobile phone, no fancy stuff, just a fiddle a voice and a foot.

My favourite violin video is an ad. from Pantene. It's really a very encouraging ad! The story tells a deaf and mute girl who learned violin and the music through her heart, she overcame all the difficulties and at last she succeed just like the butterfly break through cocoon!
I was moved to tears when I watched this ad. At that time I had just learned violin for 2 weeks and faced a lot of stones on my way. I really encouraged by this video! I hope one day I can also play my favourite song CANON beautifully!

Itzhak Perlman playing Paganini Caprice No 1, 5, and 24.

His technique still impresses me after watching it so many times.

Another neat youtube site is from the brother and sister that did this video.  They apparantly have access to a huge collection of violins and the sample each one and play very well.  It is a nice vantage point to watch some one play.  Check out their other videos.

Anyone seen the Nouveaux Honkies? ;D

Check this out! There's youTube videos linked under the "media" tab:

There are some amateur videos as well, if you do searches.

this is chaconne by bach from partita no. 2, by Heifetz.

Only a few of the greatest violinists really can play this with unparalleled accuracy and emotion; I also like Perlman, Vengerov, and Hilary Hahn's interpretation too.
