Intonation Blues

Friday, August 10, 2012

So I finally got over my tendonitis to the point where I can play when and how long I want to (with only a very occasional reminder twinge if I grossly overdo!)

And now? This end of the drought mildew season we're having in eastern PA, with showers almost every dang day has my sinuses so compacted that NOTHING sounds right! I have to play with the dang mic tuner on just to ensure I'm playing the right dang note.

I am so frustrated right now that I'm ready to scream my bloody head off.

Oh well, if I can't play the right note anyway, time to practice my trick fiddling. Again.

I'll see if I can get the vidcam to show me playing while I'm standing on my head . . .

 

 

*** CRASH!!!! ***

 

Oops. No more vidcam.

My Instruments:
My main fiddle is a hard used but wonderfully sounding D. Salzard that's about 130 years old, with a one piece back to die for, and appears handmade. My second fiddle is a very early Suzuki Nippon that looks like it was repaired by a backyard body mechanic with Bondo and epoxy, but manages to sing quite nicely. And I have an early 20th c. German Strad which is plain-plain-plain until you put the bow to her, when she turns into Cinderella at the Ball, with Dark Rich Tone. And I've got a 4th fiddle that's a german trade fiddle, a project I am currently working on, and a 5th that's a german trade, probably a Mittenwald, that needs work that I picked up recently at the flea market. I've also got a couple basket cases that came in recently. One's repairable, an amateur made fiddle from New York, but it needs the whole pegbox/scroll grafted. The other is for parts.
