Fiddles on Friday 1
Welcome, this is my first post on this blog, congrats if you read this, you've made it. In this virtual world stacked with classy or useless blogs about music you ended up on this one...if you like it or not. I'm honoured. My aim is to post a daily song (weekdays) on this blog. Every weekday has a theme and I start with FIDDLES ON FRIDAY. Songs with nice violin or string parts. And when I think about violins I think ANDREW BIRD, one of my favourite musicians, He comes from Chicago and he's a phenomenon on the violin. He often uses a loopstation to place layer upon layer, sometimes pizzicato like a banjo sometimes different long strikes so it seems like a whole string orchestra is playing. Oh yeah did I mention he's a fantastic whistler too?
