Let’s play a game of call-and-response. This will help you to:

👂Develop your ear

🎸Play with others

💡Practice and play creatively

 

How this works

  1. Listen to what I play
  2. Play it back
  3. Repeat the exercise until you can easily play back what you hear

Practice variations

Instead of fiddling, sing what you hear

Being able to sing what you play will make you a better fiddler and musician.


Instead of fiddling, audiate what you hear

Audiation is the process of “hearing music in your head” or “mental practice”. You can harness this natural process to get better at the fiddle. Learn more in this lesson.


Call-and-response on your own

  • Alternate between singing and fiddling small tune phrases
  • Alternate between plucking and fiddling small tune phrases
  • Alternate between playing something in the low and high octave
