Well a year of Darol Angers school has been fantastic, improved my playing 100% and then some. I've also spent some time in Canada and the US in that time and met some fiddlers there, learned some Metis and Quebecois tunes, how to do that funny foot stomping thing they do and got involved in some great jams.
Back home in Australia now I host a weekly Old Time and Bluegrass jam where I predominantly play old time fiddle which is fantastic considering up until now I have been most comfortable musicaly as a bluegrass banjoist.
I have to say though having access a world class teacher like Darol really lifts your playing, if anyone wants to join up let me know because if I refer you then I get a free month!- Which would be awesome because now i've been fiddling so much I haven't applied for any gigs and run out of money to pay my fees ;-)
