2 years 4 months fiddle progress
Raglan Road is a traditional Celtic tune. I’ve chosen this song for my 2 years 4 months progress video because it’s played with double stops. I’ve been working to improve my double stops and it was really nice to learn this song. Luckily it’s not too long and the double stops are not so difficult. I still find it pretty hard to play them nicely. Sometimes my double stops sound great and then it makes me feel very happy but most of the time they still need lots of work.
This version of Raglan Road was arranged by Fiddlerman. His sheet music can be found on fiddlerman.com. He has quite some selection of easy sheet music to learn from. I like his sheet music because it has bowing instructions and sometimes also fingerings. It helps to learn faster.
All tips to improve my double stops are most welcome. I notice sometimes my double stops are a bit out of tune and also I still find it difficult to always bow on the 2 strings. Sometimes I only hear 1 note or one of the two is much louder. But it’s improved much already so I will keep practicing patiently and hope it will get nicer over time. If you see anything particular that I could improve or that I’m doing wrong with the double stops, please let me know.
