    A couple of days back, I posted the total number of tunes from each instructor which have already been recorded but have not yet been published. One of our members requested the full list of tunes…instead of posting the full list in my prior post, I thought it would be a good idea to create a new post as I think you guys might have quite a few comments/votes to make.

    So here is the full list of tunes/lessons which have already been recorded, but have yet to be published as of 5/31/17. Keep in mind that each of these lessons includes all of the various components that you see in the lessons currently published, so you have great content to look forward to. You have more than that to look forward to actually, if you take a look at my comments regarding Andre’s lessons below. Sorry for the long post, but I figured I’d better get it all down. Get ready to scroll, everybody….

    AND HOW DO YOU VOTE? Feel free to reply to this post for any tunes you wish to be prioritized for publication. One thing to keep in mind is that we’ve not yet cut guitar tracks for any of Andre’s lessons, so the first of his tunes won’t be published until later in the year. Feel free to request tunes within his list for me to prioritize…Lessons from Hanneke, Kevin and Patti are ready for final editing and mastering…comment away!!

    And three technique tutorials
    “Bowing and Shuffling”
    “Quebecois Footwork” (two camera angles on his feet)
    “Quebecois Fiddle Tune Types”

    As promised, here is the video of Andre when he tested out our video/audio recording setup. This was recorded AFTER he’d been flying for 14 hours. This guy is seriously a beast. You can only imagine the energy level he brought to the studio after a night of sleep. More detailed comments regarding Andre’s beastliness below the video.

    As far as the material that Andre recorded when he was here, there are a few things I can tell you.

    First off, as you see in the video of his test run, we captured video of Andre’s footwork on his performance videos. About 80% of the tunes he recorded included footwork. The camera angle will be reversed on his feet, so you’ll have that shot in the perspective of the player.

    The second thing I would say about Andre Brunet is that the man is an absolute MONSTER fiddle player. I do not say that lightly. He also has amazing energy, a strong connection to the Quebecois fiddling tradition, and his teaching style is fantastic. You can literally sense the joy that flows out of his music as he plays. He sometimes starts to hum/sing a little as he plays, or he yells out some super-cool French stuff as he plays. I really hope he wasn’t cursing because I’m leaving it all in!

    To make matters even better during Andre’s session, the A/V recording stars aligned, and by some freak of electronics, the quality of content we captured is off the chart. Don’t get me wrong…I’m really proud of the quality of the material we’ve produced to-date on this site. But based on what I’ve seen so far, the audio and video quality for Andre’s lessons is even better than what’s already published on this site. We had a total of four mics and three HD cameras going, and as I see the pieces start to come together in the production chair, it’s like I’m literally sitting in front of Andre and he’s about to reach through the editing screen. The video is super-clean and the audio is absolutely amazing. I couldn’t be happier with Andre and what he will bring to this project.

    Before I sign off, I’d also like to remind folks that I have a verbal commitment from a new instructor to join The Fiddlevideo Project later this year. I hope to be able to tell you more about that soon.

    So there you go, folks. Feel free to copy and share the url of this post on any social media you might feel like. We’re pretty excited about what’s coming the the fiddlevideo project, and would love it if you spread the word. Feel free to tag us on Facebook or Twitter.

    Cheers, and VOTE NOW!!!!!

    I had a shot at playing the fiddle and moving my feet as Andre does and suspect we will all end up with great stomach muscles…… bonus…… it’s the site that keeps giving. Can’t wait till the new tunes arrive. Would have to be the best learning platform out there.

    I suggest Cairo Waltz. You play that so well, with an excellent beat, and your interpretation of that song is absolutely superior. It would also give non-advanced fiddlers an easy melody to follow, and the would gradually add many of the frills you put on it. It is a great song–one of my favorite (the way you and your brother play it on Youtube).

      Hi, Levins.

      Thanks for the kind words.

      I recorded that lesson twice, but that was as we were switching out studio space…Working out the technical kinks and alll that…I need to finish up on that one and get it published!!
