fiddle chick

Hello, everyone. I'm new here and wanted to introduce myself. I'm from Louisiana and have been playing/learning the fiddle for a little over a year and a half.

I don't have a teacher so I'm pretty much doing it on my own, though my boyfriend does sort of act as my coach. He doesn't play the fiddle but he does play guitar, mandolin, and even the banjo some. It's great having someone to play with who can help me with my timing, tell me when I'm hitting a wrong note, or if I'm too sharp or flat. Mostly, I enjoy playing bluegrass, country, and gospel. I have a long way to go yet, but I'm really enjoying the journey.

Thanks for letting me play in your sandbox. :-)

Thanks for the introduction. :-)

It'll be fun to follow your progress and maybe even hear you play something with your boyfriend as well. Hope we can be of some help along the way.
Welcome to the sandbox ;-)

Hi Fiddle Chick.  Welcome to the forum.  You'll find a lot of great learning tools as well as support and encouragement here.  I also love getting ideas of different songs and tunes to try from others here. 


Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
