BillyG, Ripton (and damfino... on another thread)...

Thanks for reminding us newbies about the StreetJelly live streamed performances. I've figured out how to check out everyone's schedules on the site and will try to catch them. Very exciting... something to work up to, for sure.

This thread was a pure delight to read.

I am so glad to see the Traveler and all the news!

Yahoo Ripton...these videos are awesome.

@fiddlechick70 If the Violin comes out West, CALIFORNIA... I'd Be happy to host her again.

I'd love to take her to the Bridges of my heart in the Sierra Nevadas this time.  I don't want to "cut" in front of anyone.. Just saying I am up for a visit if it is convenient and comes this way.

Oh, if you're interested then that might be the perfect time for me to jump in too, seeing as one of us might be able to save the trouble of shipping by hand-delivering it to the other.

Hello, fiddle chick got a hold of me and suggested I post on here so people get to know me a little better.

I’m an adult beginner violinist that has been playing almost for three years (will be hitting that milestone in October 24th). I currently play on the Fiddlerman Master and absolutely love it. Excited to see how playing this violin will feel.

Thanks for posting @stirlingite771. I’ve forwarded your address to @Ripton so he should be sending the Travler to you very soon.

Please post here and let us know once you’ve received it, and hopefully post some pics and/or videos to keep us updated. 

Let the bow flow.

Start a hashtag Ripton. Sounds good to me. 🙂
By the way, did you try tagging your location on the map again?

How would #travelingfiddle work?  

 

I did try, I  get all the way to the save button and then nothing. I'll try on a different computer just in case.

The Traveler has arrived! One important issue, I can't open the case! It appears to have a lock but I don't see a key anywhere... Is there a key? Or do I have super weak fingers?

Update: Definitely a lock! @Ripton Where is the key??
