,Been playing the fiddle off and on for twenty years, sometimes quite seriously. Used to play Irish fiddle, fairly well. Grew disillusioned with it. Stopped playing for a few years. Started playing bluegrass. First, spent a couple of years flatpicking the guitar, then switched back to fiddle, mostly, since the latter part of 2012. I'm finding bluegrass fiddle quite challenging, but very rewarding. I'm OCD about strings and fiddles and how they're setup. I tried to make one once, it didn't go well, I'm hoping to try again.
