does anyone know where i can find that really sad southern blues fiddle music they use in soundtracks?
Iv been looking for that sad blue fiddle music, but it always comes up with that fast hill billy ****, i want the legato type stuff... the fiddle music they use in sad movies.. the southern type style of fiddle..but sad... please help meeee!!
Ok.martin, i do know the difference. i studied music history. i used those terms cuz theyr easier for most of the population to understand. and u are infact incorrect cuz that is not what I am looking for. i know the difference between texas style and southern style. and im looking for southern style. although you are right with regards to long bow, that is what i am looking for, just not the style your thinking of...I have yet to find it. and in this case, the bpm has a HUGE affect. all of those links you gave me are all slightly faster than what i am looking for. what im talking about can be described as very slow very dreary desolate music that makes your stomach feel like its in your throat and you can feel every inch of disdain and need for something more in the music, you can feel the longing for something and the music is a perfect representation of it and it just drags you down with it and there is no feel-good ending... ok?

What you're describing, particularly when referring to legato is characteristic of Texas long-bow fiddle, more than southern fiddle styles. For the record, most country fiddlers, like any other musicians, play a wide variety of tempos, types of songs, etc., and both the "sad blues fiddle music" and the fast sh it, were all created by the same peoples-rural, U.S. southeastern and southwestern "hillbillys"

This is to Martin Couch: this is a remark you gave me from a previous post:
Back to the classroom for you. You're so far off base I don't know where to start. Bluegrass began with the 1946 lineup of Bill Monroe's Bluegrass Boys, which is when Lester Flatt & Earl Scruggs joined. It is derived from many sources, but Ireland isn't one of them (although England and Scotland are) Both Blues and Country were many decades old by that point.
My friend I think you ned to go back to class. I guess the History Channel Special regarding the history of Country Music, Blue grass and Blues music was wrong heh,, You know more than they do. ? I too have done alot of research on the Subject as Blues is my favorite music, I think you need to go back to school. It did originate from Ireland. Do your home work. Blue grass originated from the applachians, that has been proven and the applacians is mainly of Irish descent. Do your homework dude. I think I would tend to agree with the sources I have read and watched before some stranger as you......

You could check 'Vestapol Videos'. They have music/video DVDs with lots of 'sad southern fiddle' soundtracks. Some titles are: The Land Where The Blues Began, Appalachian Journey, Dreams Of The Noble Old, Legends Of Old Time Music, and Shady Grove. These have about two-dozen songs each, for about $25. Also try searching 'String-Band Music'. There are a lot of melancholy songs.

Maybe try to search for celtic violin. I did and got this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IBODzOoN-PY
Most of which is the root of the sad southern fiddle play. If I get what you mean, that is.
