Hey everyone. Got the nerve to video myself and post it for feedback. Been playing a little over 2 weeks now. I did hear a few "out of tune" notes. This is with my very old steel strings. Just got my order now of FM synthetics and will be interested to hear the difference. And a surprise came with the strings...a new cloth!  Mine is so old.  Thank you Fiddlerman!!!!

P.S. Hope no one cringes too much listening  🙂

@Fran - Your playing is excellent considering you've only been at it a couple of weeks!

My 7-year-old passed by while I was playing the video - he commented "Who is that? I like it! That's my favorite kind of music!"

Smiling and playing simultaneously is not easy. Try thinking about something funny. Truth is that you play differently when you smile. Try smiling and bitching someone out. LOL

@BowMeAway  Thanks.  I used to play in school in the 60's so maybe my fingers have some muscle memory in the deep recesses?  All I know is I'm enjoying it so much
