Some of you hangout members here may have see the two videos I posted last summer of my friend Joe LaRose and I playing some old time tunes on banjo and fiddle. We’ve been meaning to make some new videos for a while now, but these last few months have been very busy for both he and I, and we haven’t found the time yet.
In the meanwhile however, we’ve decided that we don’t feel too terribly embarrassed by some of the others we recorded last year, and so we’ve uploaded several more. If any of you would care to see them, I’ve uploaded six new ones on You-tube, and linked three of them for now to the video section here at the Fiddler’s Hangout.
Here's a link to one of them on YouTube... from there you can easily see the rest.

Geez - I don't know why the thought of "embarrassment" would cross either of your minds. I thought those videos were among the kewlest things I've seen for a long time.
I'm pretty sure I'll like the new ones too. :-)

Thanks Paul, that's nice of you to say. I hope you do like the tunes.

Hi Steve. hmmm I agree with u regarding the extremity in right- or left-handedness; I am definitely "extremely left-handed"! My grandparents, on the other hand, are ambidextrous, learned to write with the right, but do many other works with the left. I don't know any other lefty in my relatives, so I must possess a gene of my grandparents, an extreme verion of it!

Steve, I am a firm believer that their are many ways to do things and what works for one doesn't for another. Recently helped a family member get going on guitar again after he had hurt his finger years ago and couldn't bend one of his fingers to chord, he made a simple metal device that puts that finger in a bent position when wearing it and he can chord again! The strap is a cool idea for anyone that suffers when holding the fiddle up! Hey, don't they play a uprightbass with it standing up? It's just a big fiddle!
