So I found I was kinda jumping into the deep end on some of the fiddle music I was trying to learn without taking the baby steps to learn the actual correct bowings and well just timing in general so My fiddle instructor gave me a book called Fiddle works 1 to start with. I am having a lot of fun going through the book and learning however on cripple creek on the last bar of B it says to go E, F A. I though that sounded weird so i changed it to E, A C#. To me it sounds better. And I only did AB instead of AABB on here because well for some reason i got silly nervous when i started the camera and realized i started to play too fast to "get through it" and ended up making tons of mistakes. I only made one in this video where i restarted B hence my happiness at the end hahaha. Any who hope you like it!!!

That gives you another badge as well. :)

Did I forget to give you any other badges?

Good stuff - it's always satisfying when a new tune, or technique, just "works" - that's always accompanied by a YAYYYYYYYYY ! drummerdrummerdrummer

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

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