Hi All

My second recording ever.

Foggy Foggy Dew is the name of the tune. Have been trying all day to get the recording right. As soon as I push the record button I go to pieces. Just don't like camerasfainting-1344

Gets Kinda Scratchy in places. roflol

Feedback really welcome.

Haha, good one Ferret, I like it you rebel. Your posture is everything I'm told not to do by everyone, but if you can't kick back and enjoy an hour or two on your fiddle, when can you?

I was born with nothing,
and to my surprise I still have most of it left!

That's a great video. The only thing you're missing is a glass of whiskey or a good mug of beer. Although we can't actually see your table or music stand, you might just have that with you. coffee1

 

I have a reclining office style chair that I kick back once in a while. Its hard to get the E string at times with the arm rests, but what the heck. "E string, We don't need to stinking E string".

Yeah! rofl Aussies and Kiwis seem to have a teasing love-hate relationship just like Swedes and Norwegians... so alike that they can laugh at their differences.

Hi FM

Thanks

Did you mean relaxed or..... 'relaxed' cheers laugh

Have been practicing every day and it's getting better.

I'll be working on a traditional Australian tune soon (Click Go The Shears). You may have heard of it but probably not. aussie_flag

Knowing a little about Australia, I have to think the song has something to do with sheep.

One of the song's I've been working on (part time) is "Road To Gundagai" / "Waltzing Matilda", I love that song and so many people who don't know it have the idea it's about dancing with a woman named Matilda.

It's like the unofficial Australian National Anthem.    aussie_flag
