TUF Here I come!

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

Well,  as you may know my bowing lately has gone from bad to worse.  Being a Cub fan my whole life, I can deal with disappointment.  I began tonight with my classical grip doing long bows on the scales, by the time I was half way through my  bow hand really felt uncomfortable.  So, I thought, well, what the heck, I have nothing to lose, I stink right now so I thought I would go back and re visit TUF.  This is what my instructor has always wanted me to do and I noticed one of the other old time fiddlers at the jam does this.  I spent an hour on my scales doing the long bows with the TUF and I have to admit for the first time in a while I felt pretty good about my bowing.  I played Angelina the Baker...since this is the one that embarassed me at the last jam and I did pretty good.  I am going to give TUF a longer shot this time than I did the first time.  I will really focus on long straight bows to warm up on all the scales.  I am hoping I can get muscle memory that will eventually keep that darn bow straight.


I hope my bowing turns around before the Cubs make the world series.  ;  )

Well I have always wanted to play the fiddle, but I never thought I had the brains or skills necessary to even play a note much less a song. Just recently I was listening to a Blue Grass Band play and told the wife how much I really wish I could do that. Well, she said...why dont you? .....hmmm I dunno. The next day I called a guy who teaches fiddle and now here I am. 37 years old and trying to learn the fiddle with absolutely no musical background at all, but all the determination in the world.
