Thread Name: Paul Brady's version of Arthur McBride
Subject: RE: Paul Brady's version of Arthur McBride
Of course I learned lots of things about fiddle playing and how to play the fiddle. It was very educational. Lots of technical stuff mostly, but most importantly, that playing music well has really not much at all to do with copying. You have to listen, of course, and be able to follow and react. but even that's not much to do with copying.

I wouldn't say I can play the fiddle now. I'd like to think that I'd never say it.
