Hi, > StoneDog here

I apologize for not introducing myself before I started posting > This site ROCKs and I just was spending time watching the vids and learning from all the post the members have put out there.
This site has been a huge help with my venture to learn this instrument.
I have always wanted to play the violin_fiddle but didn't until now. I just LOVE the sound of this instrument.
I have played guitar for a number of years which will help me learn this instrument I'm hoping. I am going into my second month playing it and I must say,
it has been a very interesting trip so far. I have also found that it has taught me stuff on my guitar that I had forgotten about.
I poked around a few other sites to help me learn, but seem to keep coming back to this site. Fiddlerman is just great and the amount of lesson vids he has is amazing.
No reason not to learn. I want to thank the members for the help they have given me so far and looking forward to their advise.

I attached a few short vids of me so you can connect a face with StoneDog. They are from last year > I was working on a vid.
Interesting, my dog used to always hang with me when I would play the guitar > not so much when I pull out the fiddle. Maybe in a year or two when I can play something on it.

SWEET introduction, StoneDog!! (See, we know you already.)


Pssst...your vids are private so we can't see them. Try making them unlisted if you don't want the whole YouTube world to see them. Anyone with the link (that's us!) will be able to see them.

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

Thanks for your introduction StoneDog,

Your videos seem to be private.

Nice to have you here with us :-)
