[This video goes with Roger Netherton's blog post at https://coldjazz.wordpress.com/2015/03/26/how-bowing-might-work-part-2-of-unknown/ A more extended discussion of the technique appears there. On this video, he plays through the tune first at speed and then slowly.]
I came up with an interesting phenomenon of my bowing that occurs in quite a few tunes. It's whenever I use the six-note smooth syncopation over and over without syncing back up with the 8-note phrasing. I call it extended smooth syncopation. (...) Another example of extended smooth syncopation is the A part of Golden Ticket (I heard this tune from Rhys Jones). This example is slightly more complicated because I use a pulse on the second note of the slurred up-bows. https://coldjazz.wordpress.com/2015/03/26/how-bowing-might-work-part-2-of-unknown/
