Luthie here…aka Kay.
just started to play this spring. Using Allison sparrow’s online lessons. Have completed the first 10 and am working on the first song book.
I live in rush ny but spend summer weekends in the 1000 Islands. I like to practice on my docked boat!
here is a pic of me practicing in the yard while I enjoy the water view.
I bought a bubble g1 to get started.
look forward to following the forums!
You can imagine my surprise when I searched Bubble G1!
To the Fiddlerman Forum.
So glad you made it here - figured more members might find you!
It sounds like you're off to a great start and hopefully
you'll benefit from what this wonderful forum has to offer.
So nice to see you're playing outside!
What made you decide to pick up the Fiddle this Spring?
What kind of music do you like?
Can't wait to hear more!
In case everyone doesn't already know it,
Kay is VERY interested in hosting the Traveler!
I know so little that if Allison Sparrow isn't a good teacher I wouldn't know! I assume she picked the songs in book one because they build on each other and slowly move you forward. Mostof them I have never hearde before so I have to learn the tune in order to know when I play it wrong. This is slowing me down a bit.
Yes, Bunnell G1, not bubble g1 (darn spell checker on I phone)!
BTW...the name Luthie is actually the name I gave my violin. It is a take off on luthier and it rhymes with Ruthie aka Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of my personal heroes.
I have been meaning to learn the violin for decades. I am nearly retired so now have the bandwidth to do so. Enjoying to the hilt.
That's all for now!
