All right, well.
We're going to do a little string crossing
we've been over this a little bit.
We talked about the arm.
Being able to move up and down as we play
Keeping a nice, quiet shoulder.
So it's time to start combining, shuffling
ideas with the string crossing,
Just to get used to that.
The great thing about fiddling is that it
really uses string crossings,
coming back and forth across the strings
to help drive the rhythm unlike much of
classical violin style, which is tends to
avoid crossing strings, you, you'll go up.
You go up,
slide around to make it sound more like a
Fiddle, it's more like a drum, so when we
cross that string there's this, kind of,
little rhythmic element that happens, and
get very comfortable with that to where we
really enjoy it, and play it up, so.
You start, of course, very simply going
forth between the D and the A string.
Down, up, down, up.
Let's try to get comfortable with that.
So it sounds good, little lilt, dancy.
We can go the other way.
Start with the A string, or the down bow
and go to the D string with up bow.
Little bit harder,
it's a little bit more complicated motion.
when we're playing stuff like this.
We're going to appreciate the work we did
playing it slowly.
So we can also try.
[SOUND] Down, up, up.
Things like that,
we're applying two notes on one string and
then two notes on the other string.
the shuffles we talked about, the string
be able to download a PDF with some of
these kinda patterns.
These kind of string crossing patterns and
kinda go through them systematically.
Pick out the ones you like the most, play
them a lot.
Pick out the ones you like the least, and
play them even more.
