Hello everyone!  I found my way here from the fiddlershop site after shopping for a new fiddle. Glad I found this!  I'm over 50, been fiddlin around with violin for about a year and guitar for about 5.  Im interested in old time and irish music mainly.

Welcome, GregW. I'm a newbie (10 month in) wannabe chamber music junkie myself but you'll find a bunch of old time and Irish Trad fiddler folk here on the forum. They tolerate me 🙂

Thanks everyone! What tunes are you guys working on now?  Ive been on The Whistling Postman jig and The Sally Gardens reel lately.  Not to be confused with the old time tune In the Sally Gardens which is neat as well.  The version my group has of it is in Dm.  Still hanging out in 1st position.  Thanks for saying hello!
