Intro to Double-Shuffle Bowing (aka, “Hokum Bowing) Lesson

Learn to play Orange Blossom Special in twenty minutes!

Well…not quite. But in this lesson we will go over the basics of the double-shuffle bow pattern (the part in Orange Blossom where the audience goes crazy). So, if you’d like to learn Orange Blossom Special, or Back Up and Push, this is your intro.

We’ll talk about the two main bowing patterns used in the double-shuffle: what I call the 2-to-1 pattern and the 2-to-2 pattern.

There’s some sheet music to go along with this lesson and some back-up tracks that you can practice along to. If you subscribe to my email newsletter, I’ll send it along for free.
