Is that our DanielB here in the forum ? WOW,,,
If it is, congrat's Dannyboy. Now either your post's get shorter, due to more time practicing, or they get longer, due to proub bragging right's. If it's not "our" Danny, then congrat's to the other Daniel B.
Whatever the case may be,, your Christmas just got a little Merrier for you.
I'm Jealous. If it is "our" Danny... it couldn't have gone to a better person!
Congrats Dan... better be having a LOT of fun with that beauty!

Not me, folks. I didn't enter for the contest, and my last name isn't Bennet.
So a big congrats to Daniel Bennet, wherever you are!

It's a pleasure to meet all of you. I'm Daniel and I still can't believe I won. I'm so very excited!
I live in Atlanta, GA and I am a Georgia native. My first friend (and still my best friend) since moving to Atlanta 12 year ago, plays violin and sometimes teaches at a local college. I have always loved the violin, and have wanted to learn to play for so long. My friend has always wanted to teach me, but due to some hard times, I've never been able to save up for a violin of my own. I started off as a voice major in college (parents pushed me into that direction because there was no instrument that needed to be purchased LOL) and I've always been passionate about music. A friend sent me a link to fiddlerman on Facebook for the contest and I'm so very glad he did. I didn't know about this forum before, but it looks like a great community, so I'm sure you will be seeing more of me.
Thank you guys! Believe me when I say that I am truly grateful!!
Congratulation's Daniel on your good fortune/luck in winning that fine violin.
Here's hoping you won't be a stranger to this website, it's a great one, lot's of fine folk's with some great idea's and helpfull tip's. Take your friend's advice seriously if you want to play well.
