Hello! I just joined this cool forum a few days ago. Great resource, Fiddlerman - well done, and much appreciated!

A bit about me - I'm from Glasgow, Scotland, now living in Eastleigh, England.

I'm pretty much self-taught, from the age of about 14. I started on guitar (and still play it a bit, and bluegrass banjo too) but I liked the sound of the fiddle a lot better. I learned mostly trad Irish and bluegrass tunes, and played in several small bands At age 30, I got the feeling that I could improve my tone and technique, so I went to a very good classical teacher, and had some heavy-duty tuition for about 3 years, and it certainly has paid off!

I play Irish, classical and bluegrass, plus I'm writing a lot of my own stuff. I posted a video in another thread (The Tornado) .. and that's the kind of thing I'm working on these days. I do a bit of teaching too.

I'm also learning gypsy jazz and Indian carnatic style too, and I have a day job as well - so I'm pretty busy 🙂

Good to be here...cheers!

Jim

Welcome Jim,

Nice to have the official introduction. Glad you enjoy the site and contribute as well. I visited violinist.com before Fiddlerman.com became popular and after making too many contributions was kicked off with no warning. It was obviously my links to this site that did it but they never asked me to subside or remove them.

This is a place where we can all learn from each other and I'm extremely proud of the members here. I've only had to kick off one guy because he was extremely offensive towards all these great people here. Started because we donated a violin to someone and he felt that it was a waste of money, rofl..... You guys remember that?

Happy you found us and thanks for the introduction.

We look forward to your posts.
