Analyse my playing #2
I was relistening to my recording just then and realised some ppl’s points were valid, so id like to go ahead and take your advice if youll still have me.
The main reason i took the vids down was cos i dont want to show myself on the internet for all and sundry so id like to keep it to audio.
I know some might want to see my movement and holds etc but i prefer not.
I think if its kept to a call and response then if i regularly upload reiterations youll be able to see if im improving or not.
in this video i wanted to concentrate only on the pressure.
some ppl say add different lengths to the notes but i dont think thats a necessity to sounding good and in fact think the unswung style of playing sounds better and is what im going for. i specifically like the players who dont do that. johnny canning, brid harper (sometimes) listening to johnny canning ive slowed it right down and he plays notes pretty much exactly the same length- even on hornpipes! i think playing like this makes tunes sound even cleaner and succinct. he just adds pressure instead, which is what i want to work on.
Does the pressure sound ok on this one? I know its sloppy but its 1st attempt. do i need more pressure still? it already feels like im really forcing on the bow so i dont know how you get even more without damaging it!
