I couldn't find the thread where I posted my first attempt at playing drones, so here is a new thread.

Here is my first try from two months ago at playing drones. Pitiful, just pitiful! embarassed

 

I have been working on them off and on while trying to play Angelina Baker. After listening to Barry, I think I am missing something in my attempts. For the most part I have been working on the fingering and the double stops. I'll try the shuffle when I don't have to concentrate so hard on playing two strings consistently.

Today's practice:

...by the way I love the finish on your fiddle.

Yeah, it looked a lot better for the day or so that I had the cheat sheet off of the fingerboard. I jumped the gun on taking it off.

Good job, D! I'm jealous that you have the courage to tackle drones. I'm still trying to only play one string at a time, not so successfully. This gives me motivation to try some drones or double stops in the near future. Keep up the good work!

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.
