*Notes: A Suggestion Form contributor sent us the second YouTube above, along with these comments on fiddle bowing, “You’ll see how she rocks the bow on the octave Ds and Gs.  The third bar she rocks the bow from the Gs to the other notes. Different kind of rocking than the octaves but that is also called rocking in old-time parlance.”
