Here's a challenge.  Play two of your known tunes as though all notes are slurs.  In other words, don't pick up the bow, keep it on the strings.  Might be a way to learn new phrasing or it might just be silly, but its fun either way.

Waaaaait a second! I'm interested, but i don't think i've got it right... So, if all notes are slured i have to play the whole thing in one single up- or down-bow? O.o That'd be quite a challenge XD!!

 Or You mean that a particular quantity of notes should be slured per bow? How many? Or a different amount? I'm confused. I actually can play anything of what i play without lifting the bow (sometimes it will cause the wrong-direction bow change, but managable).drooling I'd give it a try if You explain, or maybe there'll be some video... amuseblinklaugh

Aloha @MrYikes,

I'll be posting another tune today in the Share section that is like what your describe.  I call it "Karen's Fancy", named for one of my nieces here.  I put in the slurs I use when I play it, as some of them are probably not where everyone would place them.  I knew how I wanted to tune to sound and had to work out the bowing after having put down the notes.  I'll post it today.
