Mike from Frank’s Fiddle asked, “I’m starting to experiment more with texture and slurring and I find that slurring really messes up my rhythm for the whole tune. I’ve tried looping and get it ok in small chunks, but when I add it into the tune it completely throws out my timing and I find I never slur the same sections. I know it will come in time, but is there a trick to getting the slurring rhythm down?”

Thanks to all who attended this office hours session and asked questions 🙏


Further learning and practice

  • Practice on scales and tune phrases.
  • Master the slur rhythms on different scales.
  • Practice at different speeds.
  • Practice slurring across strings.
  • You’re on the right track because you’re practicing in smaller chunks.
