Excuse my terrible title joke, but that's just how I am sometimes.

I happened to stumble on this forum. Seems like a lot of useful info already from what I've seen so far so. I've seen Fiddlerman on YouTube so recognized his face like right away when I got on the site. 

As for me, I've been a part of other forums (non-music related) with thousands of posts so I understand how to be somewhat constructive. I started playing fiddle at the age of 9 or 10.... memory's a bit hazy but yeah anyway it was young enough to be able to develop a good ear for music. I quit for like 3 years (with maybe a bit of playing here and there), and I've recently started getting back into playing like a few months ago (I'm 19 now). I actually played better than before... was pretty surprised, but what took me to another level was watching videos, and playing along with them. My timing is probably the best ability I have, and it's quite a great feeling to be able to play along with professionals. Keeps a person motivated that's for sure.

Anyway that's me in the profile picture. I've had that 300$ fiddle for like 10 years. Cheap 10-20 buck strings. Was coasting through Fiddlerman's shop. 6k$ fiddle. I might have to start a patreon/gofundme account or something hahaha. 

Music I'm currently working on: Bonaparte's retreat. I've never done DDAD tuning so was a different experience. I actually attempted the music without doing the tuning and man it does make a difference.

I notice there's a section of the forum where people post their music, and people either praise, or give constructive criticism. I may just be a part of that sometime.

Anyway yeah I tend to write lengthy posts, but I guess that's just how I roll.

Welcome, David. Looking forward to hearing you play Bonaparte's retreat or another piece. I haven't experimented with alternate tunings yet, l but I like a lot of the fiddle songs that are commonly done with alternate tunings.

How nice to meet you.

We like long posts and a sense of humor around here.

I have played with DDAD tuning for Midnight on the Water in the past. I simply adore it and my attention went onto something else.  I sure need to revisit that tuning.

Welcome and enjoy.
