Recently completed and currently available for purchase through AcuTab.com is the latest DVD production to be completed here at CBP, Ron Stewart – Playing Fiddle In The Bluegrass Style. Ron is a great fiddler who plays with bluegrass legend J.D. Crowe and The New South. He’s also a sought after session player for many bluegrass recordings. The DVD is roughly 90 minutes in length and covers everything from basic technique to advanced solos to some of his own songs. You can read more about it on the Acutab site.
Ron is accompanied on the disc during his performance of each tune by Kenny Smith and Harold Nixon. I was very pleased with the audio we got on this recording.
Another nice feature is something we’ve done on the last several AcuTab DVDs. During the teaching of the tunes we present a fast and slow version of the artist playing through the song in a split screen, or dual frame, set up. On this DVD, as well as the last several, we’ve included alternate angles of this portion of the presentation. This allows the viewer to switch between several different views of the artist’s hands.
