I have gone nuts on clawhammer addiction, and picked up another fiddle at a pawn shop - no lable, but SWEET!

That's almost an overwhelming question! (LOL!) Music's in my blood - in fact it is my blood! AS is writing (both words and music - so anything from acapella solo to vocal harmony - to choir,chorale writing or conducting - to fiddle and a few other instruments - but fiddle is my main joy - written, or even more by ear! Just pick it up and go! (Also teaching meself clawhammer banjo -( which, I still play like a fiddler...) Love especially irish, scottish, mountain, folk, old english - cannot hear a melody without instantly going harmony - (probably the welsh in me) Sometime I'll get to a real bio. Everyone who thought they wanted music/school, had to learn to play the Flutaphone - and I was terrified! - because I knew that if I didn't pass, I had no recourse - the adults were in charge, and I couldn't wait years! I HAD to have music!) Suffice to say when I was offered flute or clarinet as a kid, I was affronted. Had to be violin. When I got school lessons, (2nd grade) I don't remember learning to read music - and aside from glancing at the lessons, (in my Belwin string books) I would go home, put on Strauss, Souza, Vivaldi, Mozart & Teleman, etc and close my eyes and play. (my dad used to sit in the back patio after work, with ice tea - and there he taught me, and played records, of every musical style there was. He also taught me ship navigation and astronomy. He started when I was about 4) Best gift a kid ever had! These days - fiddle-wise. I have found myself into more of the folk oriented - irish, scottish, celtic, sea chanties, old time! Bluegrass is okay, but I have an avid leaning toward modal and storytelling! So I often write, and there is a story to be illustrated with it. What can I say, but that my writing mentor is Hans Christian Anderson - and still is... So if I can mix mythology, storytelling, and music together, (or make up a story, imagery to play too, it works! (course, some music for pure pleasure simply as music is fine too!) I write a lot of choral stuff, and honestly just about anything easily inspires stories or tunes. It took me 53 years to admit I was a romantic - (since I am not a big fan of the ~romantic~ period in music -) just a bit gushy drama -angst for my taste , But I am intrigued by the composers themselves! (and any history of tmusic, writers, dance, bards - etc. -and participants, going back to the creation of earth - and before ! LOL! My tastes tend more toward European - not so much the "western" aspect!!! (Smiley - embarrassed and chagrin, at admitting that!!!! Not to much a southwestern/western cowboy/indian person) - Give me the mountains, forests and streams and medieval catacombs, Renaissance, and classical and Baroque - and of course the irish picts and what not - faeries, trolls, Norse, you name it! any thing folklore - or having that potential - But once I looked up the definition fully of a romantic, I just had to laugh!! But don't confuse me with debussy or chopin, or that crew - i like grieg though! anyway! lol!
