Old-time fiddle tune, done my own way.
Favorite of 1 person
Superb arrangement, and well played Kathy!
thanks guys! (blush). I had a FB request to play the tune "off the cuff" so I've done one... I'll post it here too.
Hey Kathy. Nicely played version in D and G and certainly your own.
thanks Joe! You know, you get so used to your own playing, it's always nice to hear that you have a "style"....
thanks Joe! That's funny you should say that.... one of the reasons I crosspick so much is 'cause my left hand sucks so much! Maybe I should rethink that...
ha! I can't tell you how many times I've looked over at my left hand and been mortified to see my pinky sticking straight up! And I tell it to curl and it says to me, &%& off!
Next time I'll try to get some right hand in there. It's my observation though that the subtleties of the right hand don't show up that well in videos. I can tell you this: I use a pretty small pick these days, rotate it around a lot, choke up on it right smart, and plant or drag my pinky.
I have a youtube channel... I was looking at some of the videos to see if the left hand is more visible. These two might be most revealing: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kl-JCWzOdtg
In that last one there's at least a few places there that pinky straightens out!
Oh, this one might be most revealing about right hand approach. Though of course you can't see the pick angle stuff: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5sI2Hl2qOl0
