Abigail Washburn & Béla Fleck play Béla Bartók

For Children: No. 3 Quasi Adagio, No. 10 Allegro Molto — Children’s Dance

Two banjos, nothing else.

It’s classical, it’s Early, it’s old time, it’s mountain, and it’s modern.

Stunning.

floppyhump:

The third finger is the culprit. My fiddle’s squeaks and squawks come from that damn third finger. My bowing is pretty good, I think, and your first and second fingers are never gonna have a problem cuz they’re pretty strong already, they’ve evolved to be that way. It’s that damn third finger….

I hear you.

The first two years I played, the third finger was weak and wobbly. The fourth finger was much stronger, but my aim with it was painfully bad. The aim was so off for the third and fourth that my teacher told me I wasn’t allowed to bend or slide a single note until she knew I could hit it clean.

Keep going, it gets easier. :)
