TOPIC: Chopping...

Chopping... 10 years 8 months ago #5080

I just learned that when a mandolin is chopping, a fiddle should not be chopping - or should be chopping LESS. The fiddle should chop when the mandolin takes a lead. If there's no mando in a group, the fiddle should be a CHOPPING MACHINE!!!.....but the mandolin takes precedence because that's its job.

So - what does a fiddle do when not chopping, and not taking a lead?

(I want to do something else because my wrist really tires when I'm chopping non-stop with the fiddle! :blink: )

Tigerpaws....When I play the notes "long" in my little corner, FM catches me and accuses me of taking a lead when I'm not supposed to!
