Hi all, I'm new to the forum -- I've been a fiddle player for most of my life, then in 2018 I designed and built a cello -- so now I'm trying to learn how to play it. Here are a couple of seasonal tunes (plus a ringer): Tin-can cello: Happy holidays!

My blog is at http://readin.com, and my twitter is @themodestokid.

Welcome! I love fiddle music and want to really get after it and learn a lot. My Great-Grandpa was a fiddler, so apparently it is in the blood. Thank you for sharing your talents.

Jeremy, welcome to the forum. Thanks for posting the link to the washbucket cello, that's a great Christmas offering :) I'm amazed it sounds actually "good". Also, you seem to be picking it up pretty well too.

Hope to hear more of your fiddle and "cello" music on the forum.

Merry Christmas and have a Happy new year.

Holy Smoke - as they say - yes sir, just listened to that - and you are clearly crazy enough to be well accepted here ! (meant in the nicest way possible!)

Awesome, and WELCOME !  drummerdrummerdrummer

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Thanks, and thanks! I must admit it sounds a lot better than what I was expecting as I was building it, and nearly as good as what I was hoping for...
