For the last 4 years I have spent a day at a local FiddleFest - because I like a bit of fiddle music...and because I really don't learn by ear - so it's a real challenge for me to be 'made' to do it... Yesterday was my Fiddle day...and a beautiful day it was! I went with a friend this year (who also doesn't play by ear)...and we had a good time. I picked up a new book of Waltz duets - and we played through some of those on a break (both of us momentarily back in our comfort zone with something printed on paper to work from )...and I think my ear playing is getting marginally better! I did find - and print off - one fiddle tune when I came home - and I did have it right...lol... Now I need to get back to my classical music...I'm trying to work out the 2nd position (so frustrating for me) bits ( to speed) in my orchestral excerpts of Gershwin and Haydn... ALL of which got me wondering...what is everyone else working on...what problems they're currently having/working on/overcoming...choices, etc.
