I’ve only recently got onto double stops and need to practice them a lot. Also string crossing.

I also need to improve the dynamics of tunes I know well.

I confess that I haven’t yet paid any attention to bowing technique.How much does it matter in fiddling?

My brain ticks away slowly and I know that I’ll never be able to play very fast.I do wonder why so many fiddle tunes are playing at 100 miles an hour when the lovely melodies sometimes get lost in the relentless speed. That’s my excuse anyway!

I started FiddleHED lessons in November 2021. Absolutely love it. Only wish I’d started earlier. My 70th birthday is on the 5th March.(We’re having. Ceilidh).
I’ve got a lot of catching up to do.❤️🎻
