It's crazy! Come the end of January, I will be starting my tenth year of carrying a fiddle with me pretty much wherever I go. It really doesn't seem possible that it's been that long.
Recently, it seems like I've begun to catch on to some things that I probably should have caught on to long ago. It's possible I just wasn't ready but it's also possible that I just wasn't working hard enough. :)
Old as I am (I'll be 57 in less than a month), it feels like there's still a lot that I can improve and I'm still motivated to try.
This evening I worked a bit on crossing strings without losing the rhythm and here's where I'm at. I love this tune!
Clyde Davenport's Boating Up Sandy. Learned from David Bragger.

That IS a lovely tune! I like your playing and attitude towards learning.

Thanks! One of these days, when I have time, I'm going to go through a Clyde Davenport phase. :) I really like how he plays and I wouldn't mind knowing a few more of his tunes.
