As an absolute beginner on the fiddle, 7 weeks, but experienced on banjo and mandolin, these two posts have been a revelation to me because I suddenly ‘discovered’ that I’ve been using the string pressure from my fretted instruments on the fiddle when ‘just stroking the strings’ as AJ puts it, is all that is required. This will help smooth out my ‘playing’ (to be generous,lol) and also with my most difficult technique, smooth/accurate string crossing. So I thank you both.
