The Fiddle Sessions Jazz Violin Project: Go Tell Aunt Rhody – #7 Marty Laster

October 2011 No Comment

The first break uses the melody and has a minimal amount of chromaticism (notes outside the scales or arpeggios) Bowings are a personal matter, but you may like some of mine.

On break #2, I am playing off of the chords, not the melody, and am incorporating more chromaticism, blues and leaping registers.

The last chorus mixes bluegrass style with swing, while touching on the melody.
