@ABitRusty -

Bruce Molsky definitely has the rhythm - great Old Time Fiddler!

Come to think of it, for someone who said he was stickin' with Irish Fiddlin' - me thinks your heart beats Old Time rhythm!

I don't think I ever posted anything from the wonderful album Bruce Molsky did with Annbjørg Lien & Mikael Marin, "Waltz With Me" - GREAT stuff!  Bruce has a good voice - sang some on this album, too.

...guess I better hop to & put a link in a Nordic Thread - I have so many fabulous things bookmarked, I forget about many of them.

I believe Bruce Molsky Flys under most people's radar, he's a very good musician very technical in his playing. Old time music does not get much air time so most people are unaware of it, and him.

Master the Frog and you have mastered the bow.

@elcbk said ... "Come to think of it, for someone who said he was stickin' with Irish Fiddlin' - me thinks your heart beats Old Time rhythm"

yeah .. what im learning in the way of classes is just Irish.   I like old time fiddle music ..just havent put the time in to get the bowing so it sounds like it.  The notes are easy.... the feel not so much.  for me anyway.  may have to revist pegheadnation.  Im also gonna try and buckle down with David Bragger's fiddlehell video Old Time Bow Rocking and Fundamentals.  Listened to it the other morning but didnt have instrument.

@Mark I agree. although in the fiddle world he is a star.  He has also released a guitar album recently.

@ABitRusty -

Don't be so hard on yourself -  your bowing is totally recognizable as 'Old Time'! 😎

@ABitRusty -

? I have great respect for your bowing - I tried following some tutorials on several different bowing patterns, maybe a year or so ago.  I couldn't apply them & didn't have enough patience to keep practicing them - so, I have nothing. 

I think you sound like videos I listen to of famous fiddlers - so pretty darn good!
