For any of you folks who have multiple fiddles:
Do you play them all about the same amount?
Do you favor one?
How do you chose if you favor one?
Do you have names for them?
I just got fiddle #3 which is an awesome 5 string. I've been playing that more than the other 2 right now and keep it in STD tuning (CGDAE) because it sounds best that way to me.
I still try to play my other 4 string fiddles. I keep them hung on the wall and ready to go. I like playing them cross tuned for how they sound best. My bright one is AEAE and the other darker voiced one is some sort of D variant like DDAD, ADAD, or ADAE.
I've been thinking about names that would suit each individual but not really sure if I want to name them and talk about them by name...feels strange to me (not sure why), even though I'm attached to each one.
