Welcome! I'm totally new too and this forum is awesome. The videos are fabulous too. Once I decided to take the plunge I began studying. Fiddlerman is very good and sometimes a little fast for me but I just play them as many times as necessary. Boy I wish we had a slow mode on the videos. Good luck to you and don't hold your breath too long! It will be fun learning with you.
