A little too catchy

Here is a lesson on how to play the melody for a Fortnite dance called “Best Mates” on violin and fiddle. This is a catchy tune, maybe a bit too catchy! Don’t listen to it before bed.

My student and friend Toby will be showing you how to play the melody on violin. He’s new to teaching, so please give him lots of love! If you make it to the end you’ll see us bumble our way through the dance :0

Some of you might be wondering, “What is Fortnite?” It’s a super-popular video game in which you fight zombies and save the world. Who doesn’t want to save the world? And who’s not worried about zombies taking over! A fun feature of the game is that players can do different dances within the game whenever they feel like it.

Toby is an avid fan of the game and fiddling. So it just made sense that we combine these two awesome things that he loves and make a fiddle video.
