What is your favorite Youtube violin video?
« on: Sep 18, 2008, 12:46:02 AM »
What is everyones favorite youtube (or anywhere) violin vid?

My favorite all around one is this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1MFxEjber7E
This is one that inspired me to start violin again, I think it would have been better without the background music.

Great videos!  I love the tiny violin.  LOL 

My favorite youtube is anything by this guy.   ;D  ;D  Maybe I just want to wear a pastel ballgown.   ;)

OK..just kidding, although Andre there is always so darned happy

Anything by Heifetz.  This is interesting with the slow motion photography.

I'm awfully fond of this:

Gilles Apap certainly has a sense of humor,
and does a good job of nailing some folk fiddle styles-
and the blues section just cracks me up!

Just one favorite? Here's the one I think of, if asked:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iKJqlST2WZk
A Guarani guy with what seems to be a German Strad copy, if I hear them right, at the beginning. Natnot should not view this one, as there are st#ck#rs on the fiddle.

I want to be a musician when I grow up.
Sorry, son, you can't do both.

Thank you Bill...I'd lost that link ages ago and could never find it again...one of my faves too..

I like the raivlin reel (1st song) below
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3LazHvPb9Mg
and Madame Nurida gets the bow going

Hey, Chris! (I got nowhere fast looking for Guarani fiddler... Guarani violin popped it out on top)

If anyone is looking for the dots of Madame Neruda, that's how to spell it. Lots of arpeggios related to E flat major. The distinguished fiddler morphs the "u" in his speech similar to the way someone from southwest England might say "hauyce" instead of "house."

That kid playing upon Pachelbel sure gets his mileage out of a saw-stroke, yes? That was fun to listen to...

You get sucked into it...

Am I crazy (don't answer that!) or is Alex Depue the same hair as Alexi from "tiny violin"?

Have you guys not seen Alex Depue?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHC_Qyov2Xc

That's a good one too.  Saw him live with Steve Vai several months ago at the Keswick Theater.  He was good, but Ann Marie Calhoun overshadowed him that evening.  She played amazingly well, and was a better entertainer IMO. Mark Wood's band opened up.

My hero, Willie Hall:-

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7XA16CzV_Y0

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18LA4TN9jqM
gc

Yeah, I love that one lots too.
He plays better in stunt positions than most fiddlers
do normally- manages to pull good tone.
Where he pulls the worst tone is also the funniest-
holding the bow between his legs and rubbing the fiddle
against the bow- I've NEVER seen anyone else do that.
And just when you think you've seen it all, he puts down the fiddle and plays...
oh go ahead, watch it, I won't spoil that for you!

Michael

I can't wait for shoes like that to come back in style.

That last bit was astonishing, especially if you consider the right/left coordination, and lead time he had to generate for the right hand. I'd seen something like that in the days of live B&W TV, only the instrument there generated a constant tone. Much simpler. Willie Hall still rules.

Just silly fun.

I dunno... sounds/looks like pretty serious fun to me.
I play electric guitar too, mostly bluesy stuff, but I can
appreciate a good rock solo, and this is a GOOD rock solo-
in spite of the crazy stuff, it retains ummm... a sense of musicality
throughout.  And I listened to his other stuff- quite varied styles and approaches-
good intonation, good tone, dramatic playing, creative arrangements,
good composing skills... it just goes on!

Thanks for posting that!

I like so many favorites, but here's one:

Here's another of my favorites, for comic reasons:

That's just a few of my favorites.

Here's some good dancing too... and puzzle about how they got the bagpipes in the vaccuum cleaner?
(best if you're not eating or drinking while watching, unless your computer needs cleaning anyway)

There are better vids of Ed now, but that one made me start playing the violin.

Shetland fiddler Maggie Adamson, and the set the kids around here call Ship to Ship. Worth checking out her other vids as well. As a comment on one of them says, "look out, Aly Bain!" ;)

Here's a kickbutt Mason's Apron from the same young lady:
