Hey @ratvn ,

 

Here's a quick video I did to show some of how I play St. Anne's Reel and some of the double stops I like to use. Hope it gives you some ideas to play around with. I don't have as nice of doublestops on the B part, but oh well.

That was awesome, @fiddlinsteudel. So beautiful playing.

Your time and help are greatly appreciated.

Your playing style and improvisation of the tune are several light years ahead of mine. I downloaded your playing video to study it bit by bit, as it's way beyond my ability.

Again, thank you so much for your help and guidance.

Robert

Hey @ratvn here's another video on how I play those doublestops in the A part. I just wanted you to get a sense of how little extra fingerwork I have to do to make it sound good on this tune:

Nice playing, thanks. 

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

Really nice @fiddlinsteudel 

I think that maybe the first tune that I try with some double stops will be 'Faded Love'. It's just made for them.

@StoneDog 

Just laying around here in shorts, t-shirt, and what I think you guys call 'flip flops', listening to the waves breaking on the beach in the distance.

And of course there is the icy cold beer. cheers

Great job,
I'm glad you have the heat back now. I felt sorry for you. I have a real hard time playing when my fingers are cold. :(
