It was great to see so many string instruments featured in the different songs for Eurovision this year. I remember a few years ago, it seemed that large African/Oriental drums were the “fashion”. This year, it seemed to be violins and cellists who played standing up!
As a treat for Eurovision fans who play the violin (but mostly because I had to figure it out because it’s been stuck in my head for the last few days), I’ve transcribed the violin riff from Norway’s Fairytale song by Alexander Rybak! Have fun pretending to be Alexander!
