Im Brent my wife jackie are picking this up together. We drive truck cross the USA back and forth for weeks on end so one of us drives the other sees the country from the passenger side, I have a eclectic musical taste classical Celtic blue grass zidico country 70s80s rock and metal along with dance stuff I call it stuff due to it being a lot of auto tune. Its like fake breasts nice to look at but not genuine. I have a little drum experience nothing official just banging around to the songs I love. I have no musical education to speak of my 2ndown grade music teacher was a bit of a flake and I lost interest and was a jock so hear I am now focused and eager to learn like a dried up sponge. I've dampened my skin and started learningstaff and nitrate. We have a hand made violin electric violin waiting at home for us to learn fingering and bowing with we went electrical due to FM and the head phones so not to ruin the others ear when driving this closet down the road. I've seen a lot of smart azzes on hear so I will feel right at home. Thanks in advance to all with great tips and I should be shredding twinkle in a couple of weeks with distortion so keep an eye out in the criticism section. This will be awesome or awful you decide im probably gonna start a show called America has no talent. But I do have humor so by all means beat me up if im that bad. God bless FM and the rest of you for all the help.bagpipes-1254

Welcome to the forum wanabfidler. Sounds like a perfect combination, you can play while Jakie drives.

Happy you found your way over to Fiddlerman.com and I look forward to your posts.

Well their are worse things that you could do while driving, there is texting or banjo playing for example. Its not hard as long as you start at the beginning and work methodically towards your goals. Tuner for ear training, metronome for when you start  playing to tempo. Welcome, we all stunk at the beginning....well, not all. I dont. thumbs-up

Hi Brent and Jackie ... hope you enjoy this site as much as I do.

With your sense of humour intact you'll be fine here, they're a great bunch.

Yes, don't listen to some, we ALL stunk in the beginning, some of us still do.  But I'm sure I'll get better.  I've learned so much from these friendly people, amazing what a little communication can achieve.

Keep at it, it's a lot of fun.

And the little emoticons are great too, lots of expressions there.

Still waiting for the Aussie flag ... hint hint ...

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.
