I taught myself to play fiddle and have been playing for some time but I suspect there’s too much tension in me when I play, plus I”m not sure I’m holding everything correctly. I’m much better playing by ear than with music but I’d love to improve my basic technique. For example I’ve tried for years to get vibrato, watching every Youtube video going, but it’s not happening. Sometimes I think I’m close but I’m sure it’s to do with tension. I’ve been trying The left hand exercises to keep everything loose – do you have any other suggestions – especially about the bowing?
