In my 9th week of learning how to play the fiddle, I learnt how to play hot cross buns! When this lesson came up in the Trala app, I had to laugh because in my first blog post on my learning project I mentioned that hot cross buns was about the closest I got to playing an instrument.
I finally finished the first chapter (fundamentals) in the Trala app. In the tenth course, I learnt new notes, practiced crossing strings more, and the tune hot cross buns.
- Course #10: Hot Cross Buns
In this course, I learnt the F and G notes. So, remember when I talked about 1st position? Notes F and G are in the 1st position on the E string. F would be played by my index finger and G would be my middle finger. Once again, I struggled with having flow when crossing strings between notes. I played the exercises and continued until my pitch and rhythm were good.
I made a video with my laptop again on my process and will upload an audio of me playing hot cross buns!

In the future….
Next week, for my 10th and final learning post, I would like to learn how to play twinkle twinkle little star. A favorite of my daughters and the closest thing to nimosom.
