Killer Technique: Fiddle presents exercises designed to develop fluid
left hand and bow technique for fiddlers of any level. The exercises reinforce fundamental playing
movements and stretch the reader's command of the instrument. First the
left hand and the bow hand are singled out, addressed individually via
exercises featuring a variety of permutations and combinations across
the strings and up the fingerboard; next, coordination between the hands
is given attention through exercises using both hands simultaneously.
Note: The exercises in this book are not written in standard notation. The patterns that make up the exercises are written with finger pattern diagrams, finger order numbers, string numbers, fingerboard diagrams and bowing patterns.
