Crafton Blues – Featuring Matthew Hartz

Crafton Blues is what I would call a country blues tune. It mostly fits the blues chord structure, but it’s not what most people would consider bluesy. Crafton Blues is a popular fiddle contest tune of choice.

Here Matthew plays a Texas-Style fiddling arrangement of it that he is improvising on the spot.

Because he is improvising around the melody, rather than just around the chords, this type of improvised fiddling is often called controlled improvisation.
