Starting out with my Grandads fiddle

Monday, February 17, 2020

Well here goes.

I inherited my Grandad’s fiddle when he passed away about thirty years ago and she has been languishing in her case under my bed ever since, but recently I have been feeling the urge to learn to play, or at least scratch a tune out of the old girl!

i am a big fan of Country Rock and love bands like Zac Brown and Old Dominion to name but a few and always listen to the wonderful fiddle licks with wonder, so this January I took my fiddle to a guitar shop I know and had her refurbished. New pegs, strings, bridge, fine tuners and a new bow, along with a damn good nourishing polish, something that has seemed to bring her back to life.

I have joined this site with a view to beginning to understand just how approach fiddle playing, from under standing the instrument ( I can’t  even tune her at the moment) to beginning to play tunes that don’t sound like I am slowly killing cats!

I’ll keep you all posted with my progress, thanks for havin me!
