Hello from Fergus and Fiona!

Updated: Nov 25, 2021



So here it goes, my first ever blog…what does that word even mean? (Apologies from an Oldie!)

I’ve decided to tackle some commonly asked questions from other fiddle players. This first one is ‘How do I relax my left hand?’


Those of you who come to see me for lessons will know I am like a stuck record when it comes to the word ‘relax’. Sometimes easier said than done, I know, but here is a great wee exercise in ‘feeling’ what a nicely shaped left hand feels like….have a look at this video:





The video explains a lot about the 4th finger position but I think for a general picture of how your hand should feel and look (rounded and relaxed) this exercise is a topper.


Off to walk the dog. :). Cheerio
