First Fiddle Blog Entry

Posted by Banjo Rob on Wednesday, March 19, 2008

Well, today's March 19.  I got my fiddle out again the other day and tinkered with it for a little while.  According to this site, it looks like it was about 3 weeks ago I posted a few topics about bridge adjustments and what not.  Didn't really do much after that.  I have a hard time playing the fiddle, as I'm primarily a banjo player (not a very good one, either!)  I find that when I play, I get frustrated and I switch over to the banjo just to make music.  I don't know. 

I guess maybe I'll start a topic on practicing.  See what people have to say about it.

The fiddle is a demanding mistress. She will only respond to your touch when she is sure of your commitment! Set a goal of a certain "minimum" time you will play her each day -- bad sounds or not. Suddenly you will start to make something akin to music and you will be hooked. It has happened to most of us.

If it doesn't happen, your instrument may need some adjustment, or new strings or rosin -- or perhaps a new bow. You can't give this a good "go" without poor equipment!
