Oh my gosh, I never realized that was a *real* song - that one about the hen. My kids were in this string instrument musical last year in Nashville, and i instantly recognized the tune....here is a little 7 year old boy playing the same thing, he comes in about 1/3 of the way through - it's pretty cute...he looks like he was born to fiddle. There was an audience of several hundred watching....
Barry, I like it. Your bow hold is peculiar. It seems you are comfortable with it.There is a slight change in your violin hold in this video. I think Fiddlerman will start a new topic on different bow holding methods, especially on the Russian method.

In this case, the numbers (G2) means the duration of the notes, i.e., a quater note, the (3 means the following three notes are triplets. 😐 means repeat.
The melody is on G major scale or E minor scale.
capital/uppercase letters indicate that those notes should be played on the on C major scale (CDEFGAB) and are used as reference for the lowercase letters, which indicate they should be played above C major scale.
i hope this makes sense.
I visited that site Barry and bought his book with CD, "43 Fiddle Tunes in Tab"
I still havn't received my blues violin book that I ordered a week ago from the Berkley online music store. But thanks to Fiddlerman for starting a new area about blues violin. I want to dabble in celtic fiddling too if anyone can steer me in the right direction?
