hokelore: Tommy Jarrell

I've got Tommy Jarrell on the brain right now. It came up yesterday. I was at a fiddle workshop with Brad Leftwich. Every month or so, Brad holds a fiddle workshop at his house. I'm about 50 miles from there, which I consider to be reasonable driving distance. Every time, there's a theme, often a particular bowing pattern, or sometimes a fiddler. Yesterday it was Tommy Jarrell, Brad's admitted favorite. He's becoming one of my favorites, as well. That bow rocking -- sounds so cool when he does it, sounds like hell when I try. Something to keep working on, and maybe one day...
