You'd think in a town of musicians like Nashvegas I'd know plenty of fiddlers, but I don't! I am a 43 year old full time Graphic Design major, but I was classically trained from 1979-86 in school orchestras and the Jr. and Youth Symphonies, and a class at Blair School of Music, Vanderbilt University. I still love to play, though mostly Scots-Irish fiddle tunes, Bluegrass, Jazz, Gypsy, Cajun, and just whatever I hear! I love Bach too- hes an essential. I have perfect pitch, play by ear and can read music. I have my violin sitting beside my desk, case open, uke beside it, for spur of the moment inspiration (:

I feel my violin is as essential a tool as Adobe Illustrator to my Graphic Design, and is often my inspiration (:

Happy fiddling everyone!

Thanks for the introduction. I'll see about making that Bach video soon. This is a busy week for me but I will hopefully find some time. Sounds like you play all kinds of great genres. We'll enjoy getting to know you here.exactly

Thanks everyone! I'm sorry I am behind on replying here! 

@myguitarnow & HeadCheese- Quiche Loraine was my nickname in high school from The B52's song (second album), same name but  with an extra "r". The nickname stuck (: 

@Mad_Wed- I haven't tried to do a video just yet, partly because of my confidence level (been awhile since I have played in front of an audience), but my current speech class has helped (: I know of several public domain Scots-Irish tune books I'd be happy to share with you- I collect tunes (: I am sure you have a fabulous folk music tradition where you are at! You will have to share some Tartarstan tunes (:

@BCShalom- Shalom! I am a bit rusty too, don't feel bad (:

@Barry- Sounds like fun! It's been years since I have been to a jam session. We have essentially all the instruments needed for a Bluegrass band, minus the bass fiddle- if I had more time I'd learn them all (: I'll check my FB page- been awhile since I've been on there.

@Huey142 & LateBloomer- Thank you for the warm welcome!

@fiddlerguy- At your leisure, no hurry. Just looking through your advanced tutorials, there is plenty of refresher material for me to busy myself with (: Much appreciated!

LOL! I don't play unfortunately Tatar music much =), i know only one - "The Foxy" it contains 5 notes.. i played it in summer, when i was a total beginner..

roflol . I'm russian, and don't even know tatar languageembarassed . here in Kazan are not lots of people who really speaks it- it developed mostly in the periferal area of republic.. Tatar folk music is very beautiful and pentatonic.. Maybe i'll play it someday birthday_balloon.

I play guitar also Loraine and even a little mandolin, but cant say Ive got much experience on the mando. We'll have to do a jam when the weather breaks, we got a great spot where we can sit out on the bluff over looking the river.

My mando needs a tension rod adjustment (annoying first fret buzz), but I have tinkered with it, the tenor banjo some, and mostly uke- my affinity for perfect 5ths tuned instruments...it makes more sense to me. I have a nice Epiphone dreadnought guitar, but the bass/treble tuning and six strings but only four fingers thing is awkward to me. If only I could afford a tenor guitar (: Picking too is hard for me to get used to. I will typically get impatient with the others, and inevitably pick up my violin (:

An on the bluff jam in Spring would be nifty! The current weather really stinks don't it?

Russian music, generally speaking, is certainly a fabulous tradition! I am fascinated by the many unique cultures within the boarders of different countries, including my own, and how they all influence one another in many ways, particularly with music.

Yep! exactly There is influence of course, and Tatar music is very traditional. It stays recognisable even if one sings Tatar rap smile. Fur /Edited:that was Deutsch facepalm I mean-> FOR/ example everybody can define is a music Irish or Chinese or Brazilian.. Same with Tatar music laugh

Hi QL! Can we have your video now which is long overdue.

LOL, I actually made one for her but it was terrible.
I have Orchestra Miami all week, a funeral tomorrow, Two concerts on Saturday. Fiddlershop.com, Fiddlerman.com..........
Thanks Suresh, I will do something soon. For one thing I have to demo Aleive's HC602 which appears to be very positive already. Only played on it for about 30 minutes but it was hard to put down.

HC 602

Why is it offered in 1-piece or 2-piece back or did I read that wrong?

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
