Hey Fred, good job!
Thats a mean, clean, string machine!

Be good to see Diane here when she brings the instrument to Europe, haha

How about everyone who'ss name on the list drops $50 in the "donation" box in case the instrument gets "lost"

I am amazed at how old people of my age are.....

Forgot to say Fred, that we should definitely begin with the members here that have tenure. A credit card is actually not a bad idea. Let's keep that in mind for later.

All suggestions are very welcome.

Thanks Terry and Rick,,, it was definitely a down and dirty vid that at least illustrated the qualities of the violin.  I know I should've at least warmed up before having at it, but didn't have the time.

Thanks for taking your time to do the clean-up. :-)
That was a very careful initialing on the back there Fred. I'm going to tattoo that fiddle if I ever get my hands on it!!! LOL

Just mailed the "Traveler" along to Steve!  See details on Topic Page.  Steve, you should receive it on or about the 12th.

There's at least 3 people in Oregon if I recall. If ever it makes it way here, at least 1 hand delivery/pick-up could be arranged on my part.

 

I have my belt sander and an old solder iron/woodburner all stoked up. A 30 grit should help the journey along nicely  fainting-1344hahaha.

 

This is going to start looking like an old vaudville trunk. By the way, how about a local sticker for the case, Is that appropriate?

Hey Leo, a sticker on the case is perfect; I put one from the Julian Family Fiddle Camp I attend here locally.

Hi Fred,

Thanks for the notice that I'm to receive it next. Where is the Topic Page? I have a heck of a time finding anything on the Forum in general. I read all the posts, usually daily, but after that I can almost never find that topic again once it's no longer listed as
Recent Forum Posts.

I'd guess the Travelling Fiddle would be unde  "Fiddlerman Group Projects" on the main opening Forum page, but looking there I don't see anything about it. I tried a couple others that might have a logical connection, and again didn't find it.

So please tell me where to look to find details!

It's not posted anywhere but here on this forum thread. The best thing to do is to bookmark it. :-)

I'm contributing a 4 GB USB drive to go with Traveller. I put a bunch of Folders on it, so each person who receives it can put their name on the folder and the date and location. Any pictures, videos, etc. they make can be put in their folder. I put Fred in California, January 2013, for the first folder. I also made a .pdf giving the name, date and location and the info for the signing and included that in the folder. I used a free PC program, Cute PDF Writer, to do that if you don't already have a way to make a .pdf of a file. A .pdf makes a little more permanent record.

I just can't get away from that horrible "autoplay" thing that I thought was only for the soundfiles. Oh well, guess it can't be fixed. I don't know how other folks post videos that don't "autoplay", but I've never posted a video until now.

You are one of the first one to successfully upload a video here. LOL

Most people use Youtube and post the link. If you do that I'll use that link on our traveling fiddle page. thumbs-up

I am trying to get my shortcodes to work so that you can pin the map but it doesn't seem to be sending out the shortcodes as I thought it was going to be doing.

Will be sending you and Fred one soon. Or at least as soon as I can get it to work. :-)

such a fantastic idea!

i've been looking forward to the next vid all week!  ....thanks, steve, that made me smile!

hopefully by the time it's toured around and is ready to make its way up to canada i'll have earned enough stripes to warrant it making a stopover with me! 

....so no rush!  lol!  ;)
