Hey I'm Catharina. I've been playing violin for two years for MS orchestra. I've picked up new skills, and I'm interested in learning fiddling. If y'all have any tips or music for a beginner that'd be awesome! Thanks 😊

Welcome to the forum, @catharina.

I sent you an email with some helpful links. That should help you figure out how to get your questions answered.

If you have any questions, maybe go to the Learning to Play in the Learning Violin/Fiddle Section and start a new topic with your question. That will get you started. You can check out other questions and may find answers that way too. Don't be afraid to ask a question that has already been asked. New members may have a different answer or point of view. 

Check your email for a Welcome Emil from mouse.

Welcome to the Fiddlerman Forum! 

So great you are looking to explore new things with your violin!

If you let me know what kind of "fiddling" you are interested in,

I might be able to help. 

Happy you've joined us!

Hello and welcome to the forum.  You have a major step up already playing the instrument!  I would suggest listening to this youtube and trying to learn the very first tune angeline the baker..then revist the video and play along with them.  Angeline the baker is sort of a first tune.  Bile or Boil them cabbage down is another one and  Elk river blues is another tune thats played alot and is fairly straight forward.   This video has a mix of irish and old time...the second tune in 1st  video is an irish tune.  have fun..the main goal!

 

angeline the baker lesson

 

here a website that has some info..

Mississippi Orchestra? Glad to have you here. Are you guys playing as a group for the moment? Most of my friends/colleagues are not doing that much live performing as of yet.
