Check out the 2021 Fiddlerman “White Christmas” Group Project.
Hello everyone, I just joined this evening and I have no idea how to do anything! Am I showing my age? I think it's a miracle that I figured out how to post this. I have no idea how to comment on a forum, or find out how to join a group performance. So here goes.
I saw that a group play started last month, how does that work? I noticed that there is no viola music yet, though it says there will be soon. I can't find any other Viola music so I guess I'll learn fiddle.
How long do you have to learn the song before it is gathered and performed. How is it gathered and performed and how do I do that? I admit, it kind of freaks me out to think I would record my playing and post it somewhere (I'm kind of a closet player), but the end result looks so fun. Is there someplace on the web site that discusses all these newbie questions?
Welcome @Oceanside Girl !
I was just having a quick look on the forum before we head-off for a week - check out a finished project - I know there will be about 200 posts to read through - but almost everything is discussed there - like - how you work with the click-track, ideas on recording, and how to send the finished video (and what format etc etc) to Pierre - check out this thread from the very beginning to the end - LOL https://fiddlerman.com/forum/c.....christmas/
I think most of your questions will be answered there....
And, good luck with your fiddling !!!
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
If you are a viola player, you might want to check out the sister site to this one: http://www.violaman.com
I think you'll find viola sheet music there written in alto clef, including the music for some past projects. This forum, I believe, is the primary discussion forum for both sites.

No apology needed! I really would like to start playing fiddle and so this gives me that opportunity. I'm adult learner with the Viola, played for a couple of years when my kids were young and because of living in a small Oregon Coastal town (Florence) there weren't many opportunities. I picked it up again about 3 years ago and love it. I play with Oregon Coast Chamber Orchestra, but we only have about 2-3 concerts a year and that leaves me with a lot of time on my hands with no one to play with. I really want to learn how to just sit down with people and play and feel confident, jam sessions? I think this will help me with that and I'm very, very excited to do this with all of you. I just hope I can learn how to do it all...recording, uploading, all that stuff. Thank you for keeping this website, I'm going to pass it on to a young lady that I know that wants to learn violin and others as well!
