wow...I had a heck of a good time and I am going to play the whole thing again.  I put away the wine and grabbed a cold one.  I was in bed but I got up and I am dancing around the kitchen with the music.

Thanks so much Barry.. If I wasn't in jammies with a crazy hair do... I'd have to play something too.  You inspire me to learn to play for myself and then just play and put it out there and have fun. "loosen up"

I am dead set on some more fiddle tunes.  My VP recorded Snow Deer and Wind that Shakes the Barley..and I have the sheet so maybe I can put some effort into those after I figure out what to do with Thaxted.

Thanks again for posting.  Happy Friday evening to you and Sunday Morn!


Barry you might not know it but you are leading the way.  It is nice to have such a good violin friend.

Great work there @Barry - you're on fire dude !    Like the reverb/sustain etc as well - nice set up, simple, but very effective !  Really enjoyed listening 1st-placethumbs-upthumbs-upthumbs-up


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

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

Fantastic Barry. Like your setup and I'm thrilled that you like the bow.
Effects are fun aren't they?
Keep on posting, love these type of videos. Very personal and real.

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
