    Yep, I know we have a HUGE backlog of lessons recorded but not yet produced (including a few from Hanneke)…but that’s not holding us back from another recording session with the amazing Mrs. Cassel!!

    Hanneke will be in the Fiddlevideo.com studios March 5-7.

    We’ve received a bunch of requests in various forum posts/emails/etc since her last recording session…I will pull those requests together and get that list in front of H before her session. My thoughts are to have her concentrate on some of her originals as opposed to Trad Scottish tunes for this session…

    If there’s a tune you really want taught on this site, please feel free to post suggestions in this thread for Hanneke….

    And I REALLY look forward to producing all of the lessons we have in our pipeline, many of which have been requested by you awesome FV subscribers!!

    Post away!

    Hello Casey,

    Well, first one to post…not a surprise : when i saw your topic, i jumped on it !! 😉

    I have so many things to ask to Hanneke :

    – First, i’ll request a technique tutorial about CHOP : i talked about that before, i’d like to learn how to do this and have exercices. May i also suggest to Hanneke to feel free to “chop” in her tutorials when she teaches us tunes ? I know she’s doing it in her recordings and when she’s performing live. It won’t be something to do absolutely for everyone, but something to achieve eventually…it adds so many nice rhythms.

    As for the tunes :

    – CYPRESS JIG / JIG ATI-TOINE

    – PATIENCE

    – WHISTLER OF ROSSLEA : a really nice irish tune but my interest here is really Hanneke’s version, especially her bowings and her variations.

    From Hanneke’s last cd, “Trip to Walden Pond” (a masterpiece by the way…) :

    – TRIP TO WALDEN POND

    – PASSING PLACE (my favorite) : for example, she’s doing “chop” in this tune, and it will be nice to have it.

    Thank you and thanks to Hanneke for considering those requests,

    King regards,
    Sabrina

      Hi, S.

      I’ll pass along the suggestions. Our newest instructor, Niall Murphy, is quite the accomplished chopper….we recorded 8-9 tutorials on the various types of chops that he does when he was in the studio. Those are nearer to the end of the production pipeline than way at the end…but it might be a little while before the whole series is ready for publication.

      And that doesn’t mean that H can’t address the chopping subject, too! One way or the other, she’ll see these requests.

      Thanks Casey,

      I don’t know if there’s any difference between chop in Irish fiddling and Scottish fiddling, but my interest is really Scottish fiddling : if Niall’s tutorial works to learn how to chop, that’s great (he’s an amazing fiddler).

      If Hanneke agrees to introduce chop in her tutorials, that will be fantastic.

      Thanks again,
      S.

      Yeah, S. Chopping as more than a 2/4 technique is fairly new to the fiddle lexicon…and I think Niall’s tutorials will get you well on your way to where you wish to go…

    I recently saw Patti Kuskurok do her version of La Belle Catherine on YouTube . I love that tune!! I know it is French, but can Hanneke teach it to us? Or Patti too. Would love to see it on the site.

      Hi, SJ.

      You’re in luck. Andre Brunet recorded that great tune during his Fiddlevideo sessions. I’ve asked the guitar player we have working on Andre’s stuff to prioritize recording the backup for LBC over other tunes. It may be a little bit, but your wish is granted…that tune will be taught on this site by an AMAZING player!!!

      Cheers!!

    Also Mist Covered Mountains of Home, or by its Scottish name ‘Chi Mi Na Morbheanna’. Johnny Cunningham does an ethereal version from the Celtic Fiddle Festival. Would love Hanneke to teach us this one too.

      Hi again, SJ. I believe Niall recorded “The Mist Covered Mountains” in his sessions…Or Kevin did.

      I think we actually have a couple of tunes to produce (one from Kevin and one from Niall)…both “The Mist on the Mountain” and “The Mist Covered Mountain”..maybe they’re the same tune and I’m getting confused, but I know we have at least one tune involving mist and mountains…stay tuned for that!!

    First of all. I love this website. Got the yearly subscription for a Christmas present. Some of the tunes I learned thus far from Hanneke ‘s lessons are “The Captain” and “For Reals” I would like to request Ides of March and Trip to Walden Pond, Passing Place, and if possible Dusky Meadow. Thanks Hanneke and Cassey!

      Yes sir, UT. No guarantees that she will choose to record it, but she’ll at least see the request, sir.

      Cheers, and fiddle on!

    Great to hear of all your suggestions for Tunes and Techniques!

    Sounds like your thirst for tunes is not being quenched but only is making you thirstier for the music. Keep up the good work and enthusiasm for fiddling. Cheers to all, RW
