It's here....all safe and sound, I was out and hubby brought it in thinking I had made a purchase....got home to the dogs jumping around in pink packing peanuts, and an interrogation - the grandkids were super excited, told him it was just like a "Flat Stanley"....hubby laughed when he thought a bottle of crown was in there, commented that I might need some to play it on camera...

...well wrapped - thanks Cid...will get stuff up asap...

  

I added the Crown bag to carry the shoulder rest in.  There's no where to put it inside the case.

I took it to the boys lesson last night, and their fiddle teacher, Ridge, played it for us, his family all thought this was such a cool idea....the boys want to be just like him...

Yeah, so I probably should have waited to post Ridge's video, cause the bar kinda got set really high!

....so I'm gonna bring it back down!!!!....this morning I found myself on my own and thought what the heck...I've been trying to play this tune for a few weeks, and if I don't do it now I might forget it, or get too nervous, so 4 coffees later, and thinking all you guys are way too nice to ever say anything awful to discourage me, and if I don't just do it I just never will....almost got it down....I hope!....(ignore first part, I never know when to start!)

Dang Mimi,  I want to learn that one!  Really enjoyed listening to you, especially liked the slides!! This had a definate old west kind of feel to it or just old time maybe.  Also, the backing track was a nice touch.  Glad you posted.  thanks!

Great stuff @Mimi Aysha - nicely done!   And it's always cool to see other "guest players" get a shot of the Traveller - don't forget to get Ridge to sign her as well - we've done that in the past.  Thanks for the two fine videos 🙂

Oh yes, I too love Ookpic Waltz (and your slides.)  I'm going to add the slide in my playing of it now lol.  Good job. 

That kid can PLAY!

Thanks @bocaholly It was mind of a joint idea with Fiddlerman (mostly Fiddlerman) because there was so much weight added fo shipping and it was requiring such a big box. The tail on a bluebird statue was already broken off. I would suggest, however that not only not including anything that is to be eaten, that no liquids, gels, etc be added as a memento. It was fun looking through it and seeing the items left by those I “see” here regularly.

I hope the walk through video is posted here. I don’t do Facebook. 

  

Lol I was actually the one that asked him if we could send the mementos to his new shop.  I didn't get around to it when I had it (newly wed and all).

Yes, this makes a lot of sense.

Thank you Cid - So glad you put this up again - felt like an idiot as couldn't find this to add onto...

I started jan 2018...with Suzuki book 1, so over 2 years now....on and off along with life! I tickled with it for about 6 months a few years back and learnt to read basic music notes with essential elements and my little $75 electric off amazon! - had to take a break for a few years with RA, (could not get a grip to hold fiddle or bow in place) but with new doc, and new meds, and my hubby treated me to a real violin! - I can use my fingers again - woo hoo! 

Ridge signed it, gave me some tips on the song....he was just messing....my fav song that he plays. I officially started lessons with him last week...so excited, such a sweetheart, and a very talented young man.

I had hoped to run down to the old stockyards, but they closed most of it...hopefully it'll all open back up again soon and I can hit up some landmarks.
