Who says there's only one right way to hold the fiddle and the bow?

This guy is playing backwards: bowing--using a very unusual bow hold--with his left hand, and holding the fiddle upside-down. His Czardas sounds just fine!

Wow, I've seen gamba-like instrument holds but nothing like that. Since he uses his thumb for the base finger, he can get a really big stretch without leaving position.

One other benefit that I can see, for very lazy players, is you can practice in bed!
