Fiddle tips:

The chords are A, D, E7. Fiddle plays double stops (two strings) all the time. Lead in to the main part by walking up starting with the E note on the D string using A string as drone. Lead in to the bridge by walking up E string to an E chord (B note on A string and G# note on E string). End each part with E7 chord (first finger across D and A strings) then back to A.
