🙂  @CyndieZ  TYVM !   

Glad it made you feel happy !   dancingdevil-violinbunny_pole_dancer

Yeah....   it was a sort of "off-the-cuff" and un-planned kind of thing - i.e it didn't have my usual minimum of a hundred or so play-throughs (for me, required even for a simple piece)  to make it "sound and feel as the best I could get" LOL -  but - the point is it WORKED and brought a smile to your face - and - know what - THAT'S what matters for the type of stuff I play, and the FM family we share our playing adventures with.   Cool.   cool  

Now - my mission is complete !!!!  Hahahaha 

(Oh... no it's NOT - nah, I'll never stop....  there is always something else that's fun to mess around with on fiddle - no end to it... )

Wow I really enjoyed listening to that! Did you improvise that yourself? Also I noticed you holding the bow higher. Experimenting with different holding positions? How do you like it?

@ryonass / Rodas - 🙂  Thank You!   I do change the hold on the bow quite a lot depending on what I am doing/playing.    That is probably "frowned upon" by tutors etc - but personally - I *do* find it good for some of the type of things I like to play (some get quite fast, and I find that type of hold minimizes potential bounce - well - let's just say "bounce when not intended" and it lets me "control" a chop/bounce when I want to - best to let me leave it at that description 🙂  )

Yes, the tune was "improvised" to the extent that yes, it was not from any sheet, hadn't played it for practice more than maybe 16 or so timesand I played it by-ear (or better said, "what I hear in my head") - and of course - as I ALWAYS do - I will vary the tempo to change-things-up-a-bit as it goes along....  ( that's what fiddle is all about, and besides, I just play fiddle for fun, and hopefully to bring a smile to people's faces from time to time !   I have no other agenda ! )

Glad you liked it !   My pleasure entirely !

That is what it is all about, Thank You !  drummer
