GUEST,strad Fiddle Bowing (82* d) RE: Fiddle Bowing 23 Dec 07

Well said, Jeri & Sorcha.
The main thing, to my way of thinking, is to play the notes cleanly, and not e.g. clip other adjacent strings - what my wife calls Tattie Soup.

Being a bear of very little brain, it took me a long time to change my bowing from one note one bow to being able to play three notes down one up or vice versa and similar variations. So now when I learn new tunes I try different bowing patterns. The more you try, the better player you become. Happy Christmas everyone!
