A very quick demo of Georgia Shuffle bowing, with downbow on the offbeat and upbow everywhere else. u u D u u u D u is one measure of up and down bows. Here I play saw stroke, Nashville Shuffle, and Georgia Shuffle - first on a scale (a good way to practice!) and then on a simple version of Sally Goodin. This pattern and others are explained in my book Oldtime Fiddling Across America. Enjoy!

This is hugely helpful and comes at just the right time for me because it's exactly what I'm starting to work on . . . Thank you very much.

Great example of this bowing pattern. Helps to de-mystify that sound.

Thanks for posting this. I hear folks talk about some of these patterns all the time, and never have a clue. Now I'm at least a little more in the loop. Appreciate it! And good fiddlin' by the way!

These are just fantastic , to be able to hear the transition form an exercise to performance use
is encouraging like David said " helps to de-mystify that sound "

David: thank you so much. These are very helpful. For a novice like myself, if you ever get around to producing a video of these, it would be even better!

PS: I will have to watch these again when I get home to my home computer. The volume was weak on my laptop, so I really had to get close to hear your commentary.

Thanks again

What a treat to listen to your intonation while you're teaching the shuffles! :-)
