The deadline for the 2023 Group Christmas Project submissions has now been extended to Monday the 11th of December.
Wow, Fred, that's an amazing experience!!! The closest I ever came to holding a real Strad was seeing one behind 3 inches of protective glass! Come to think of it, I may have been hyperventilating then! LOL I probably would have blacked out it someone offered me to hold one!
That's also awesome about the Slipper Rest!! I've been receiving several compliments on mine! I've been passing the word out every chance I get! Hopefully they made it to the Fiddleshop after I wrote down the info for them! In the reenacting world, the fiddlers are looking for items that are hand-crafted and not made of plastic, which also helps. ......not to mention, once they try my violin with the slipper, they are always impressed! LOL

Denny, unfortunately no video or still; I felt like a jackass playing such a fine instrument as it was, I didn't want to feel like a tourist on top of it! HAAAAAAAAAAA!
Thanks Barry; yeah, it was fitting for me (the song that is),,, but Wiskey Before Breakfast would've worked just fine too, lol. (I wish I knew that song, I've gotta learn it,,, you posted an instructional & sheet music for it before didn't you)
@megafgosd - Please refrain from posting content that has little or nothing to do with fiddle/violin/bowed string instruments (including links to casinos, I might add)
Your other contributions which you have made are welcomed, so thank you very much for those.
I agreed and removed the post from megafgosd <--- Fiddlerman
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
