Thank you, @Jim Dunleavy .

Again, really fine, enjoyable playing and perfect form.

Fellow Fiddlers, this is a great video to watch to tweak your form!  In another recent thread, someone asked about improving tone on the G string.  Watch Jim’s bowing arm   and wrist in Angels We Have Heard on High when he plays the G string.  Most of the answer is right there!  

Look at his wrist as he bows throughout the whole piece.

Thanks for sharing, Jim!

Thanks ABR. It was the string bass section from the Spitfire BBC orchestra VST. 

All the sounds on that VST were sampled from players of the BBC Symphony Orchestra.

Oh, Mark! That was beautiful! I think my favorite was the third time through with the double stops.
