Just recently started learning how to fiddle and I love it. I have a great teacher by the name of Ron Walker. He is here on the fiddle hangout as well as the banjo hangout too. Great guy, great teacher and great fiddler too. I hope I can pick it up as fast as I did the banjo. There is alot more to this fiddlin stuff than the banjo!

The fiddle is going to take you longer to pick up than banjo, since the bow is demon-spawned. It takes a certain stubborn cussedness to be a fiddler. Good news is it's also addicting. Have fun with it!

Yea I already figured that out, have worn out my fiddle for the last day or so. The bowing is what I have been working on for hours. Your right it is addicting that is for sure, once you get the hang of it you can't hardly stop. I don't consider it practice really cause I am really liking to play.

ha ha love it bj aint that the truth of it. No point playing fiddle if you are weak in the heart. Takes alot of paitence and commitment. The best pracitise is the practise that you enjoy thats when you get the most out of it. Question are you finding it harder to play fiddle than Bass?
