I just broke mu left collarbone and am out of work and etc for a while- so a perfect time to fiddle!- except not, right? I can’t hold the fiddle but wondering if practicing (one handed) scales on a keyboard could be useful? Or maybe the community has ideas- listening exercises, idk?
Maybe you can hold the violin “guitar style” and pluck the strings. Can you use your left hand at all? This way you can work on fingering and tunes. Using a keyboard will help you to learn to hear pitches and rhythms. You can memorize tunes from a keyboard too. You will be practicing everything but muscle memory on the fiddle.
Reading the “Peak” book is something I’d like to fit into my schedule. Also sometimes I search to hear all the different ways a tune can be played. Happy healing.
