We all know ELCBK, aka Emily, but seriously, how much do we really know? I recently interviewed Emily and Fiddlerman just posted it. Please read and come back here and comment for Emily! Don't forget, you can also leave a comment beneath the interview and here.

@elcbk I like how you always try to end on something good.  Think it helps.  You have a great outlook on music and glad your active here and share so much info!  especially tunes.   theres many that i listen to that may not have ran across had you not shared.

Thanks @mouse ..nice interview!

Really enjoyed the interview and it really was an interesting insight into Emily's passion and it raised an awareness into some questions and motivations that focused some personal thoughts on my own development.

Thank you, Emily and thanks to Mouse for your efforts in doing this interview.

@elcbk

I personally enjoy the passion you have for all types of music and the willingness to expose others to it.

Just the positive can do attitude that you have given the physical difficulties you contend with give hope to all who have physical issues playing any instrument.

@Mouse -

Thank you for asking me to do this! 

At first I didn't see much reason to do the interview, but your questions helped me re-focus on my priorities.  I sincerely hope that it helps people who visit the Fiddlerman site to feel there is something here for everyone who has an interest in Violin, Viola, or Cello & great music. 

 

@ABitRusty , @JohnG , @Mark , @Katie M , @Jim Dunleavy - 

Thanks for looking at the interview! 

Figured it would be pretty boring to anyone active on the forum - you've heard basically everything already, at some point, here. (lol)

I genuinely appreciate ALL your support and your tolerance of all my queries!

You are welcome, @ELCBK, and thank you!

I am hoping to do more in the future. I have an idea about who I want to ask next, but mum's the word, on who. 

You did a great job, Emily. Very much appreciated your cooperation. I am pleased it helped you.

Thank you, but the same goes for you! 

...I have plenty of doubts - even tonight.  My Brother called and I wasn't sure I was going to be able to just pick up & play something in tune for him, spur of the moment over the phone.  Think I did fairly well, but I'll never know for sure, didn't record it. 🤭  I'm not beneath blaming the weather - or the cat, if I need to! 

Don't we have an amazing relationship with our instruments?  So far, it hasn't been much different than my human ones - takes a lot of work and both my violin & viola like to complain... then there are the 'aha' moments that make all that disappear!
