yeah, I have a new violin and I’m so in love, it was love at first site. This is my first song with my new violin. It takes some time to get use to it, everything is different now. New violin, new bow, different strings and no more tapes on the fingerboard.

It’s a violin from Saxony (1950/1960)

@bocaholly Thanks a lot Holly ? The first time without the tapes was really weird, lol. And now everything new is also a new adventure!! 

I was really really nervous to play by the violin maker, but it was a great experience. I played a very long time on different violins.

With violins there is no fretting over the music.

Really like the tone of your violin, great choice! I see you have been doing bow work, looks straight and relaxed.

Hahahaha - I didn;t want to "correct you" - but - what's really very funny is that Debbie, my good lady, also refers to it as JellyStreet......    I think she just thinks, "Oh, Bill is going on 'The Jelly' " - and then says it out loud as "When are you going on The JellyStreet ?"   roflol

Haha - so you are not alone ! 🙂

Ohhhh... it could be "St. Jellie"  - the patron saint of busking - pronounced with a distinct French accent ....  haaaaaa - must tell Frankie that one !!!!  ( There just is no help for me... I'll just go get back to what I should be doing... )

Lovely looking and sounding fiddle.  Congratulations.
