Very nice! Thank you for the lovely concert. You have a really nice vibrato going there.

You also get a badge for sharing a video of yourself playing, since this forum membership is for both father and son. But, you only get one! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

This is just so great! Not only for a ten year old to play like this, but the encouragement of his father. Thank you so much for sharing this, now to box up my viola, since I can't play anywhere near this good.

Thomas you were wonderful and Yankee Chef, your encouragement of his playing is exceptional. You should both be proud!

(Edited to correct the name to Thomas, sorry!)

Thomas was tickled pink last night when he read all of your kind responses. Please forgive me, his Dad, for not knowing how to add or reply(Hope I am doing this correctly as well)to your remarks and to say hi. We were also invited to join a party, but for the life of me, I can't figure out how or where to find them. So during your patience with my technical ineptness, please know that He is absolutely thrilled at being part of fiddlermans project and page and the encouragement you all are giving him as well. Thank you so much for making it easier to keep him interested.

Hi again folks. Again, I have no clue if I am doing this right, but I do have a couple questions. When the virtual is done, how do we get notified and able to watch it? Also, I am trying to find the place where I can show Thomas whatever badge he has, but I can't even seem to navigate to where that is. Boy I hate getting older. And lastly, Thomas is going to share a couple more fiddling songs he has been practicing because not only does the fiddlerman love fiddling, but his great grandfather(even though he was classically trained at the New England Conservatory back in the mid '20s, he used to play barn dances with HIS father on the banjo and his brother on the piana. So now he loves these types of songs, which goes a long way in keeping his interest. Do I post these fiddling songs the same place I posted his last video? That's it. Us Yankees have a bad habit of talkin' and talkin' and talkin'.......

@Thomas B., Maybe I can help out with your questions above.

When the virtual is done, how do we get notified and able to watch it?

When the video is completed, Fiddlerman will post it in the White Christmas Thread in the Fiddlermanโ€™s Group Projects. There is no โ€œofficialโ€ notification, but someone, usually the member who notices it first, makes a comment in the chat roll.ย 

I am trying to find the place where I can show Thomas whatever badge he has, but I can't even seem to navigate to where that is.

His badge is visible above the text box when you select to start a new topic thread or reply to one.

Do I post these fiddling songs the same place I posted his last video?

I believe you posted his video in the โ€œShare a Viideoโ€. That is the proper place. Personally, I would post each video as a new topic, rather than post them all in one post. I would also use the name of the song as or, at least, in the topic title. You could put, โ€œThomas version of โ€™ (insert title here), as the topic title.

Share a Video

Also, in the Welcome email I sent you, I included a few links. There is a link to Forum Assistance, the Party Room, and others. That might help out. Please feel free to email me with any other questions you have. Let me know if you no longer have the Welcome email and I will send you another one.

Note, if you request I send you another Welcome Email, it will be coming from a different sender email address. I have a different email address for members to use now. Just mentioning in case you have saved the previous email address. Not a problem if you would like another Welcome email sent.

For members reading this, who have been emailing me, not to worry. I still have the other email address active. The next time you email me, I will provide you with the new email address,

The Bumblebee Flies!
