I guess Mr Price won't be taking up on Fiddlermans chin rest try-before-you-buy idea, Lol

I have tried to play a little like that just for the fun of it. I don't know how those guys do it. I can't seem to keep the darn thing still.

Barry, I noticed that the tab and the dot music is in different keys and somewhat different notes.  I am guessing that is how it is with old time music and when you put them together they sound good.  I changed the tab into dots on lines.  I find it easier to read it that way.  The notes I can play but the way you bow and add yourself to the tune I have trouble with.  I have two left feet and two left hands.

Mr Price is an example of a true old time fiddler, they played on their chest so they could "call" the dances as well.

With a singing voice as bad as mine, I'm glad to dump my chin on the rest ASAP, as an excuse not to have to join in. drooling

I figured it out Naska.  The lines you circled mean they are 1/8 notes and the number is the finger you use and the horizontal lines are the strings you play.  If it's just one line not connect to another it's a 1/4 note. and the L and the means Low and the H means High. It made4 sense to me if it was Key of DM. If I'm wrong I'm sure Barry will let us know.

Thanks, Kevin!

I never used tabs for violin before. Interesting! smile
