I have played guitar for 40+ years. I am an amateur songwriter. I like all kinds of music, especially classic style country (Hank Williams Sr., Buck Owens, Johnny Cash, Bill Monroe, lots of others) I do not like most modern country with overdubbed vocals and slick production. I am a chronic collector of different objects. (1930's radios, antique telegraph equipment, old Fender guitar amps) In my relentless pursuit of the afore mentioned objects I occassionally stumble upon fairly decent violins. In the past I have generally sold them for profit to finance my other collecting interests. I have recently found an old fiddle which I will never sell. In the past I have considered learning how to play the fiddle. The fiddle I recently stumbled on to has changed my life and attitude forever. I think it may be haunted. I am now a classic American fiddle collector and player. I own one classic American fiddle. If I never find another one, it's OK by me. The one I have is just fine. I am learning to play it. If it takes me 20 years to learn how to play it, that's OK too. In the past, everything I have played on other violins sounded bad. Everything I play on my new fiddle sounds good. This is why I think it may be haunted.
Jay, I hear ya all the way. I inherited my Grampa's fiddle. I visited a luthier the other day to get my bow rehaired, and tried a fiddle there. I didn't feel "unfaithful' trying another fiddle, I just had absolutely no desire to try to make it sing. Maybe my fiddle is haunted too! [and jealous]
Welcome to the forum. We are looking forward to a picture or better yet a video of you and your fiddle!
