Trying to move away from classical
Im a classically trained violinist. I’ve been play fiddle for about a year now. I can’t seem to get away from the classical sound. I feel like I stick out like a sore thumb in sessions. I play the notes right, and put emphasis on the right beats and do bowing patterns and all sorts of thigns that should work, but I still sound so boring. I dont know what Im doing wrong. I’ve grown up around folk music so I know how it should sound, I just can;t seem to make it sound that way. I dont sound bad, but I dont sound great like I went to either. Any advice would helps thanks.
