Earlier today I got to try out some blues fiddling on the am mixo what have you scale (i forget the name) but the scale that Fiddlerman has a tutorial on. It was so much fun, I think we all concluded that we blues-jammed no less than an hour, me on fiddle, and my friends on their respective instruments taking turns to solo and so forth!

 

I won't say it sounded fantastic - because it didn't - but I had a lot fun and it sounded good enough for me to give myself a mental pat on the back. I managed to sneak in a little bit of "twinkle, twinkle" in that blues scale which drew some laughter outta my fellow friends and musicians, so that was fun.

 

I guess what I'm saying in a slightly "performer's euphoria" kind of way is - thank you fiddlerman for the blues tutorials, they added a lot of enjoyment to my learning process!

 

Btw, does anybody have any good sources for learning klezmer fiddle? (I know I'm not at that stage yet, but you gotta aim high and work toward something, right?)

Thank you! I'm really excited about the journey - I always find myself amazed and inspired by the fact that anybody, including me, can make notes on various instruments and string them together in a timely fashion thus creating music - that's my baseline attitude towards music, but today was a great "extra boost" in a very specific way. Good times!
