Get to the heart of that old-time fiddle sound with Ken Kolodner.
We will focus on several bowing approaches that are the core of old-time sound (e.g. the various uses of Nashville shuffles, 3-1 bowing, bow rocks, string-crossing, ghost bows, mid-bow pulses) along with left hand ornamentation (e.g. 4th finger unisons, double-stops, chords, slides, triplets, grace notes, drones etc.). Standard and altered tunings will be used (e.g. GDGD, ADAD, AEAE; DDAD). To help move us along, written music with bowings will be provided for all tunes.
