Hello,

I just joined. I've been playing on and off, mostly off, for about 30 years. I had a few violin lessons as a kid and then a few play by ear fiddle lessons. Aside from that, I am self taught. Started playing a lot more in the last year. I stumbled across this site and thought I would join. I play mostly old time fiddle music but like most all of it.

Hi Leonard

Welcome from 'Down Under' aussie_flag

I'm sure you will have a great time here. I'm a 'mature' self taught, by ear player myself and have enjoyed my 2 and a bit years on the fiddle.

You'll find heaps of helpful people and learning resources hare.

Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of dunno ..... What was I saying???? facepalm

Welcome aboard, Leonard.

Ferret said it all above!

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.  

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Welcome from Alaska. Yep, been playing a bit over 2 years now.

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

I've been breathing on and off for 30-some years, and consider myself quite skilled, so I can attest to the fact that he's probably pretty good at it by this point..

What..wait..

Welcome to the forum Leonard.
I'm glad you found your way over here.
There are plenty of old time fiddlers here and if we can motivate you in any way, we'll be happy to do it.

Look forward to your posts.

Been on a plateau for a long time just getting going again. I'll try to play something when I figure out a good way to record it. I converted an old student VSO to a foam filled solid body and have been experimenting with some homemade piezo pickups. One rendition is showing some promise. I will try to record something when things slow down a little.
