My main instrument is a 5-string Stroh violin, which is a violin with the wooden body replaced by a resonating membrane (similar to the one on a National steel guitar) plus a horn for amplification.

Check out - that link will probably take you to his home page, but search for his Stroh violin posts in places like adult starters/violin fiddle here - ( he has been quiet recently - but has posted almost daily tunes for over a year on the Stroh -

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

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