Brittany Teaches the Modern Norwegian Tune “Fløteren”
 
The great Norwegian fiddler Annbjørg Lien writes a lot of great tunes, and you’ll learn one in this lesson: “Fløteren” which can be heard on her recording Prism. Annbjørg plays the Norwegian hardanger fiddle, which is usually tuned higher than standard. So she plays “Fløteren” in the key of E, but fingers it in a different way, because her fiddle is tuned up. But you’ll learn “Fløteren” in the key of E here. Brittany plays it through and then starts taking it apart phrase by phrase. The main melodic and rhythmic motif is in 5/4, with some connecting 3/4, 2/4, and 6/4 measures. Brittany walks you through each part and then plays them each slowly so you can play along with her. She also shows you which double stops and drone notes to add to imitate the sound of the hardanger fiddle, and the basic bowing you’ll use for the 5/4 phrases.
