This week in fiddle

Posted by Andah1andah2 on Sunday, February 7, 2010

 Well, let's see.

My last lesson was about scales and finding notes without my precious fingerboard tape.  I tend to come up a bit short  or flat on notes.  Also working on a new tune that was added.  It is a french dance tune and I'll butcher the name but it is something like "Le Blestreme" or something.  A nice tune which has the practice of using modals.

I enjoyed my last jam session.  I spend a lot of tunes watching and learning.  Eventually I'll get to the point where I can at least add background to a tune if I don't know it yet but right now I watch.

I was able to play a bunch of songs as the one's I'm learning come up at the jam each week.  The play it way faster than I can, but I think that helps me too (in the long run).  They even played the french tune above which was a pleasant surprise.  

Not much else to say today.  Gotta get cooking for the Super Bowl.

I'll bet it's La Bastringue. I'm fond of that tune because I remember it from my folk dancing days. Someday I'll be able to play the B part up to speed. (smile) Sounds like you're having a great time. Nice to hear! Cynthia

Way to go. You are making progress, glad to see you are doing jams, that has helped my playing (mainly timing) a bunch. If I ever get back up there to visit the family we'll have to saw off a few.
