I’m currently creating five-lesson series on the OBS. This is a super-challenging tune that I’ve resisted teaching. I now see this as a great journey which allows you to hone many fiddle techniques:
- Advanced string crossing
- Tricky rhythms
- Challenging double stops
Here’s a sneak peek of FiddleHed Lauren learning the first step: the basic OBS bowing pattern. Lauren is a single mom who works as a speech therapist. It’s challenging to find time to practice, but she’s making it happen.
I’m proud of her for jumping right in and getting this.
Alrighty, stay tuned for lots of fun fiddle lessons this year (including a series on left-hand sliding and another series on vibrato).
