@Barry: Never heard that one, but it makes sense, the bow will slide under the strings.

@Kiara: Glad you enjoyed that, thanks.

I love Chubby and his music.

@Fiddlestix     I read it in one of the books about old time fiddlers

Did you know that the reason the old timers never cleaned it off was because rosin was hard to come by and they could just run their bow across the fiddle belly in times of need.

Very interesting. Thanks for the insight. :)

I'll have to remember that about old timers. I can use that when asked how come I haven't cleaned my violin. Yes I am bad at cleaning my violin but now and then I clean it off with just a soft cloth and it comes off.
