The absolutely definitive string rhythm instructional video, this DVD will explain Darol’s rhythm concept for violin, viola, and cello in detail and using new original tunes and standards to illustrate both the fine techniques and overall concept behind this revolutionary approach to the contemporary string ensemble. Featuring the same meticulous yet relaxed approach that has made Darol’s first Homespun video Blues on the Fiddle a hit, this video delves into the secrets that powered the Turtle Island String Quartet to international fame. With brilliant string innovators Casey Driessen and Rushad Eggleston, who expand on and share their perspectives on the technique. A multi-camera approach teases out all the subtleties from this amazingly talented trio, with special tunes tailored to each individual technique in styles from Bluegrass to jazz to Ska to Latin, and a couple of great old standards thrown in for immediate use with your musical buddies.
