Wanted to introduce my son Thomas and me. Thomas is ten years old and a 5th generation fiddler/violinist. I could not be prouder of him carrying on this wonderful tradition but it gets harder as years go by. I remember as a child of the 60s and early 70s everyone played some instrument. But with the advent of electronics, it has declined drastically. He just joined the Bangor Symphony Youth Orchestra, thank goodness, and we discovered fiddlerman a few months ago. Thomas absolutely loves fiddling and especially the old jigs using doublestops. Practicing White Christmas is now his priority over the classical pieces. As long as his attention is given a boost every now and again, I am one happy Dad. So I just want to say how thrilled I am as a father of what fiddlerman is offering here and to say HI to all in this community.  170648944_4686825144666756_3118002736161600868_n.jpgImage Enlarger

Welcome to the forum. I love that he is a 5th generation fiddler, that is amazing! What an awesome tradition to pass down to each generation. My great-grandpa was a fiddler, then came me, and now my son. I never met my great grandpa but I do have a tape of his fiddling that I am trying to digitize and pass on.

@The Yankee Chef & Thomas -

Welcome to the Fiddlerman Forum! 

There are many benefits to this age of the internet, but also distractions. 

Learning to play the violin is like discovering a secret magic. 

Thomas, I think it's wonderful that you now share that secret

with generations of your Family! 

I hope you'll both find support and inspiration here. 

Very happy you are joining us!

Hey Jim, Does that mean that you are a 4th generation fiddler?

Loved your intro and looking forward to Thomas's submission for the project.

You are VERY welcome!!! Glad that you guys joined the forum.

Welcome 😁
