Hello All. It's been a while since I posted and I hope everyone is doing well! I need a bit of advice from anyone who can offer it.
I seem to be unintentionally developing a combination of the dutch and german styles of rhythm and am wondering if I should avoid letting it develop and go back to the drawing board. Here's what is happening:
In an attempt to get the upstroke and downstroke of beat one as close together as possible, I'm getting what Michael describes as the "swooshing" of the dutch style in the up-stroke as well as the "woofing" of the german style in the downstroke. I kind of dig it but am not sure if it is applicable to the manouche style.
Would it be frowned upon or is it not that big a deal? Thanks in advance for any advice!
