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 https://www.facebook.com/roy.w.shiver - 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 - https://www.facebook.com/group.....121451810/

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

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

I have never heard of a Stroh fiddle, what a interesting and cool instrument!!

 Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about dancing in the rain!!
