My first fiddle, a FM Apprentice, arrived yesterday! We were having friends over for dinner, and I'm the family cook, so I had to put off getting acquainted until today. This morning, I finally got a chance to find my way around a real fiddle, and learned the very basics: how to tune, how to rosin the bow, how to hold the fiddle and the bow, and got my shoulder rest figured out and set up. Then I practiced bowing one string at a time (the fiddle sounds great!), though I kept bouncing the bow, and I began to learn some finger positions by playing pizzicato. I'm really going to have to work at stretching my poor pinkie-- it just doesn't want to point in the right direction. Anyway, I had loads of fun.
How exciting. Have fun.
Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
