Bow Grip

What is the main difference between fiddle and violin?

I've played violin since I was seven, but I've never really tried playing fiddle. What are the differences between the two? Are there many different techniques? Would it be difficult for an experienced violinist to try?

There is no difference between a violin and a fiddle.

However, classical violin playing has a broader technique than fiddle playing. A violinist must know various legato and staccato bow strokes, and using the bow to hide or exaggerate shifts of the left hand. The instrument must be supported so the left hand is free to play at many positions along the neck of the instument. This requires a chin rest and usually a shoulder rest or pad under the violin.

In fiddle playing, the left hand will seldom leave one position on the neck, e.g., it's nailed in first position. For that reason, it is seldom necessary to have a shoulder rest or even a chin rest to play fiddle. Likewise, the bowing will not usually involve spicatto, martele, or long, lyrical passages. The fiddle bow grip is farther up on the bow, so the bouncing tendency is less and the fiddler will get a decent sound for a minimal fuss. Lastly, I understand that a fiddle is just not a fiddle unless it has about a month's worth of white rosin on the top of the instrument. Violinists, those elite snobs, say that it should be cleaned off the top, that it will ruin the varnish.
