Analytical Methodology for Study of Regional Fiddle Styles Applied to Texas Style Fiddling

Schultz, Margaret Elaine
Abstract
This study was undertaken in order to define the characteristics which lend a unique sound to Texas style fiddling. I first heard the style while living in Washington in 1975, when I heard Dick Barrett play. Like many other followers of fiddle music, I was impressed ~ith the jazzy sound of Texas style fiddling. I found, after moving to Oklahoma, that the style which was a novelty in Washington was the norm in Texas and Oklahoma. Intrigued with the new style, I began studying it in order to learn it. This thesis grew out of that endeavor. I hope it reflects the deep regard I hold for this creative music and the fiddlers who make it.
