Feeling Invincible at the Climax of a Tune....

Posted by lulufiddle on Monday, November 23, 2020

Read the title!!!!!!


You know that moment when you're playing a tune, let's go with a Cape Breton strathspey like "Sandy Cameron" or a Cape Breton reel like "Miss Charlotte Alston Stewart's," when the bow is flying and you're in serious danger of breaking a bow hair (not to mention an actual STRING) and then you hit the E string while you crash onto the C# with a BIIIIIG GIANT GIGANTIC wiggle and you just think: "Ohmygoodness, I could do either of these two things.  1. I could totally mess up like crazy and BAM that's the end of the tune or 2. I could completely ROCK THIS STRAAAAAAAAATHSPEY."

Or reel.

You know what I mean??  Several times in my fiddddddddle experience I have felt this.....Ya know, especially while I'm playing these WILD Cape Breton tunes.  It's like, you can't keep going, the notes are EXTREMELY tricky, but somehow you DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It's odd.  But great.  Fiddle is great.
