So far all the videos I've seen are about adjacent string-crossing.

Even in Simon Fischer's Basics his non-adjacent string exercises begin with détaché bowing from G to A and G to E without discussing how. And is there such a thing as legato bowing between non adjacent strings?

Has Fiddlerman done a video on this?

I don't think it's possible to slur between non-adjacent strings. You could probably fake a kind of detache if you were quick to lift the bow off the old string and onto the new.

There is one tune I play, Jacky Tar, that jumps from the D string to the E string, and you are supposed to slide your finger across the A string to mute it a bit, so it becomes kind of a grace note slur along the way. Not sure how common that is?

It can be done. There can be some slight sound when crossing but it can be done tastefully just the same. 🙂

The trick is to be able to stop the bow dead on a string while swivelling so that there's no sound? I must practice that. I hope I don't get Parkinsons!
