Well so far I've been practicing my fiddle every day for about 2 weeks and I've got 2 songs worked out. the fingerings good but still working with the bow.
First song I worked out was Soldiers Joy. Second song was Maiden's Prayer (Faded Love)
you can reconize the tunes when I play so there not that bad. Like I said, I still have Alien Bow Syndrome but it's getting better.
Next song will be amazing grace. I've made 2 lists of 10 songs each of tunes I want to learn.
My Banjo's,Mandolin,Autoharp's and Guitars are all complaining...I think they're jealous.
Got Amazing grace down real good just smoothing her out. It's a simple version but I've got a few embellishments added in.
I can't wait till it's been a couple to a few years down the road cause I know I'm gonna be REAL GOOD!
TaTa For Now, Y'all

Poor Banjo. Poor Guitar. Poor Mando. Poor Autoharp. The fiddle is a demanding mistress.

"....still working with the bow." Ain't we all, and ain't that the truth!
