Contrary to popular belief, string players can swing, they can groove, and they can rock out. The old refrain, “strings can’t swing,” may be our past, but it doesn’t have to be our future. String players can be just as effective in a rhythm section as a guitar player. In fact, strings can easily hold down a groove without any rhythm section at all, as fiddle players and string bands can attest.
