I've been learning Sally Ann, a great old-timey/bluegrass tune and thought I'd take a stab at videoing it. Watching my bowing arm I think my wrist is a tad stiff ... other than a few clams here and there, any thing else to work on?
I got a new phone so I'm playing around with multiple video angles, let me know what you think about that too.
If anyone wants to learn it I learned it from a Ian Walsh fiddle video:
And I have backing tracks here if you want to practice:
oh wow, what a fun song to play! i have nothing to critique for you, but man i could listen to that all day! what a happy cheery tune. and the multiple angles for your video is awesome! i have found a fiddle song i think i must learn! I'd love to get people clapping and dancing with a song like that!!!

Thanks Everyone, yeah I hurt my wrist doing martial arts and I just have a hard time getting it more flexible without it hurting ... any one have any wrist strengthening exercises?
I did another take of the tune cause the audio in the last one was a tad hot, but I didn't get any of the videos done right so no fingers this time ...
At the time I was studying some traditional Gung-fu. I'm current studying Tsun Jo a modern descendent of wing chun. I really really enjoy martial arts.
Ho long ago did you study ju-jistsu?
Mark...I didn't know you were here on the Fiddlerman forum! As always sounding killer man!
I love how you get a nice clean, smooth sound on your Fiddle, you've got good tone. I think your finger and wrist are flexible enough too. I'm not there yet but watching this gives me the inspiration to keep trying

And I didn't know YOU were here either!
