Quite! Sevcik nearly put me off for life. My fiddle teacher used to set me a bar a week to work on. A BAR????? what kind of insane torture is this..... Sevcik is excellent, very effective and only for the mentally ill or those who like to slam their fingers in doors for fun.
I'm over it though.
A BAR? Did I mention it was ONE BAR? Not certain if I pointed that out. PER WEEK. ahem.
A BAR a week of Sevcik? You've got to be kidding!!!
Alas no. One bar. First as crotchets, then quavers, then semis etc. Separate bows, by two, by three, by four etc. cross beat bowing, each note gets a roll, each note gets a cut, play it as a jig, play it as a reel, play everything with tips, play everything with double cuts, play everything as bowed trebles, play it in triplets...
He may have been a tad obsessed...
This is hilarious (in a traumatic way). Did your teacher then say 'One more time with feeling!'
