"If you're looking to expand your playing into a driving
rhythmic wonderful world of Cajun music then Mitch Reed
would definitely be it. The only place to get a good
solid foundation. I have looked around and you can't find
this sound in books, and there's no other teachers that are
like him. I've owned other Cajun fiddle DVDs back in the day
and they just didn't break it down far enough to make
you feel like you're really grasping it.
He starts at the very beginning and builds you up piece by piece."
