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:

Great job, as always.  Could be a bit more flex in the right wrist, but otherwise, looks fine to me.

Great job @fiddlinsteudel.  I like Ian's videos.  I see you're getting the fiddle lesson camera angles down -- very nice

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 ...

Thanks fiddlinsteudel. I too enjoy your videos. :)
Thanks for the post and keep up the great work.

Of topic question: What kind of martial arts do you practice?
I did Jiu-Jitsu for a while and loved it.

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
