You are so right, Jason! Today, I didn’t even try to play it at a faster tempo. I simply played it slowly over and over again. I discovered three things: 1. It sounded better the more I played it; 2. I was able to begin to “forget” about the hand movements and they just began happening; 3. I was able to play longer than I think I have ever done (probably because I became more relaxed and didn’t have to stop to relax my hands and arms.) I can “see” how this “way longer” looping will eventually result in “naturally” increasing the tempo when I am ready for it! Geez…you were right! You should be a fiddle teacher! LOL 🙂
