I luckily found this site while cruising the web.  It looks like there are ALOT of great people and information here and I look forward to being a part of it.  I gave up the fiddle over 28 years ago and just recently decided to give it a whirl again.  It is NOT like riding a bike!!!LOL

Welcome, Stubshaft! I sure wish I'd had the opportunity to take up the fiddle 28 years ago. Glad to see you coming back.

The greatest thing about this board is the total lack of ego here - no one is condescending of anyone else, and it's a relief and a joy to behold if you've been looking at other fiddling sites on the 'net.

Welcome Stubshaft,

Glad to see your renewed interest in relearning the fiddle. It might not be like riding a bike but you may be better at working the right way now than you were 28 years ago. Also great free resources online today to help along the way.

Happy fiddling dancing

Welcome Stubshaft, I hope you get as much from this forum as I have, it's a great place to be when you're just starting out.  But in your case ... just restarting out.

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

Welcome Stubshaft! Please don't explain the reason behind your username as I take things the wrong way a lot. 😉 Check out FM's free lessons here and I bet you will get back on track soon!
