Hi, I need some advice about playing gypsy (lautari) fiddle.
If there's anyone out there who knows about traditional ornamentation I would love to know how to begin learning it...
I'm aware that it isn't just trills as I'm a professional trad Irish fiddler (bitten by the Balkan and Gypsy bug!) and have a fair idea of Irish rolls, cuts, crans etc.
Are there any books, CDs, workshops, even websites, which demonstrate/teach this amazing style? My favourite balkan band is Taraf de Haidouks, they're virtuoso! and I also love Klezmer fiddle (Alicia Svigal) and would also really like to know how to play krekhts.
Any comments, advice, pointers much appreciated!
