Hi good folks,
Here’s a little update from our August gathering:
We looked at Kerry Polka together
-worked our way to playing first 3 bars, taking turns sharing
-Focused on rhythm for 3rd bar
-folks shared playing first 2 bars as slow as they could
-discussed/shared insights into questions/experiences with bow slurring, specifically on the pick up notes
-tried various ways to slur, bowing patterns, and also playing with separate bows
Someone had a good idea last session for us to have a song picked ahead so that folks can come to session familiar with it. I would suggest we re-approach Oh Susannah, as most folks will have some experience with it.
Once again, the meeting circle is always open to whatever yal want to bring up. Everyone is welcome.
