Thread Name: Can you rosin the bow too much?
Subject: RE: Can you rosin the bow too much?
I know some of you think that the above is an unlikely senario... that the sound of the strings poping, as well as the suddun lack of noise eminating from your fiddler, followed by the smell of smoke would tip one off that one is sawing through one's fiddle.
Well, there are a few sessions to which you have not been... between the large number of bodhran players, smokers and loud fellows at the bar, shrill virgins and drunks... the signs that you are sawing through your fiddler may escape you, espcially if you have your eyes closed due to the huge headache you have and the general uglyness of your fellow players...
