Hi, I am not sure about how to word this, but the fiddling I have seen and like the best was always played by fiddlers holding their fiddles low on the chest.
Some held the bow in a grasp higher than normal, not to mention bridges cut lower to allow strings to drone, and cross tuned fiddles.
I have never played anything but have seen dance callers walking about during a dance calling out the steps while using a low on the chest hold.
I thought that was normal.
Then again I have ben to concerts where the fiddlers were very professional and made their violins do things that I thought impossible.
When playing for your enjoyment it is like Barry said you do not have to follow many rules.
That is the exciting part, now if I could get a single note with a long bow I would be happy tonight.
It ain't gonna learn to play itself.
Yep! I do! I've noticed - that the main thing that helps me -> not to fall in speeding up the tempo. It's better to play the whole piece in one rhythm from the beginning to the end. And then i can play it faster but in one tempo during the piece... But if you fall out of timing bacause of you're tired, then just make a break! Because if you continue - it won't be healthy nor pleasant nor useful =)
