I spent Friday at the Union Grove Fiddlers Convention during the memorial day weekend. My biggest complaint is that there was not enough fiddlen goin on. facepalm

I was suprised to see how many different ways there are to hold and play a Violin/Fiddle.  Also it seems like no one plays using sheet music. They all seem to play by ear, which I can't do. All the best stuff was happening on Sat. and of course I had other plans for then. Can't wait for the next convention.cheerssmilewinkbanana

Well you know, even people playing from sheet music eventually knows the piece by heart so don't worry it will come!

True,

I can't play a piece off of sheet music too many times without it coming by itself and getting memorized automatically.
