Reply To: Kerry Polka
Thanks Owen! Sorry for taking so long to answer.
I used a shoulder rest for a long time, but just sort of got away from it. It just seemed to be unnecessary.
My favorite style of music is all of the above. Whatever sounds good and is within my ability to play. Before taking up an instrument, my personal catalog of tunes was very limited. Most all of the approximately 50 tunes that I’ve learned to play, I never heard of before learning.
My practice varies from week to week, with feedback being the main driver for weeks now. Metronome/timing, working on being in tune, working on rythem, bowing, all while trying to improve my Kerry Polka. Feedback is a massive help!
Here it is after many days of practicing and listening to other ppl’s versions of it to get the rhythm down better. Thanks for asking, Owen!
