The cello has been growing in popularity as a dynamic accompaniment instrument since Rushad Eggleston introduced it to fans of Crooked Still, Fiddlers 4, and other cutting edge string bands. Here he plays and explains his impeccable solo lines and double-stops, chord shapes and bowing techniques that can be used to back-up other instruments or singers. Rushad accompanies his own high-spirited songs; Jay Ungar joins him for demonstration of more traditional tunes. All cellists will be inspired to add Rushad's sounds and techniques to their old time, blues, bluegrass, folk and even rock music adventures. Notation included as PDF file on the disc. Intermediate. 120 min.
