Essential Bowing Patterns Workshop



Location: R6

Instructor: Dave Reiner (fiddle)

Style: Across Styles (Technique) Bluegrass Country Folk Irish New England Oldtime Scandinavian Texas Western Swing World

The rhythmic drive, flow of notes, and liveliness of a fiddle tune owe much to the often intricate patterns woven by the fiddler's bow. Dave will impart this essential knowledge in a very approachable way, as he does every year. He'll mostly be at a Low Int level, with a few patterns that approach High Int territory. Rather helpful handout includes catalog of bowing patterns and their names.
