Paul often performs with Dave Reiner and Eric Eid-Reiner in the Reiner Family Band. ~ Ornamentation ~ After a brief search of the net, I was surprised to discover there aren't more sites dedicated to fiddle ornamentation with the ornaments actually present! I play mostly Irish fiddle and was surprised recently to discover that the Scottish fiddlers I was playing with interpreted the symbol ~ above a note very differently to me. As lunchblaze said, Cape Breton fiddlers use the term "cut" to refer to what Irish players call a "triplet". Join Matt for a workshop on Irish traditional fiddle music, including the Sliabh Luachra style and repertoire. A cut—the aforementioned quick, percussive grace note—cuts two eighth notes of the same pitch.
