Next we have some play-along videos, created by some of my Strings teacher friends!  Grab your instrument and try jamming along!
"Best Day of My Life" Play along with American Authors hit song, "Best Day of My Life."
"Monster Mash" Play along with this oldie but goodie!
"Ghostbusters" The hit song from the old movie.
"Stayin' Alive" Yes, we can disco on our Strings instruments.
"Our Bows Are Moving" A parody of "Our Lips Are Moving"
"The Open String Blues" An original composition by my friend Mr. Runolfson
"Open String Rock" Another original song by Mr. Runolfson
"Open String Fiddling" Yet another by Mr. Runolfson
"Eye of the Tiger" 
"Dance to the Music"
"Star Wars" Old School! Mr. Runolfson has made a bunch of 8-bit Original Nintendo videos to play along with.  Search for him on Youtube ("Strings Resource Page") if you are interested in exploring these video-game-like play-alongs.
