    That is really close! Once you know exactly which way the bowing will go, it will get much easier. I love your triples! Very good job. You are sounding great!

    Sounds very good, Angela!  Glad to hear you playing it! Would you say bowing is the hardest part about that tune?  Looks to me like you have a pretty precise bowing pattern, for lack of better word, going throughout…anyway, it sounds good and I’m thinking a person would have to get the bowing under control to be able to handle those types of hornpipes…great tune.  Were you on your porch?  I gotta tackle that tune one day…I used to fiddle around with it, but, we’ll never did much with it.

    Thanks everybody.  Yes, the bowing is tricky, especially that one part where I’m trying to slur some stuff together.  I’m not sure I’m playing the best bowing.

    I’ve heard so many different variations and not sure which one I like the best.

    Cricket, I’m sitting on the back porch/patio at sundown for inspiration.  :^)

    Thanks again everybody.  I like this tune…trying to add some more speed and pep to it.

    This is Ms. Goodwill fiddle!  “Louise”  She just keeps sounding better and better.  I get a lot of compliments on her and have to tell them where I got her and about Gu who talked me through patching her up!
