Rachelle, you can't put frets on your fiddle, for the fiddle calms our minds, makes us fret-less.

I've heard of a (very old) fiddle with frets... it was way out of my price range! To do vibrato you can't have frets. But you can take some thin colored tape and place it where your note-positions are.
It is just in my opinion that you should probably learn to read dots, sheet music.You will be missing out on a lot of good songs if you only read tab. I know there are a lot of people who do tablature- it's a lot easier to read but in the end it doesn't pay.
But you've been playing since '05, you know this stuff already. That's four years longer than me...

The web-site is here...
Lot's of discussion about this sort of thing on the forum. Why do you think you need frets?

Ahhhh, the problem is reading tab. Just 'cause it says second fret doesn't REALLY mean you should have frets. Tab is more suited for guitar where you have a lot of places on differnt strings to play the same lick. I'm with Freischutz. Why not learn standard notation?

Let's call them "positions", Mudbug. Why in the world did they ever start saying "frets" for the violin... oh well. Tab is good for the 'jo because you're playing at breakneck speed. There are way too many frets and notes on that baby to be reading sheet music, and also you have to deal with enharmonics and trying to make it work with your fingering. Nuh-uh. Banjo neck is too long for that business. We pickers read and write in tab. But for the violin, you'll get a lot more for your money if you learn standard notation.
