Here's a tune I've been liking a lot from the new Spencer/Rains CD. Trying to nail the rhythm by using a metronome, and coming up a bit short, but it's close.

Love this tune and have been working on it for quite a while, finally got at least 1 run through fairly close to accurate.

My 1890's Lamy fiddle made in Paris, wanted to play this song today. I felt a bit like an observer rather than a participant as it just poured out. Had to share.

This song was originally written for the mandolin, with a friend of mine from Oklahoma. I am finally beginning to be able to play some of this stuff on the fiddle. :-)

Almost got this one. 737 courtesy of DSM International Airport. LOL. Not sure who to credit the odd beeps to.

Another tune with syncopation, that I have been needing to try and nail down. This one is still kicking my hiny a bit, but it's getting closer.

Warning, No fiddle content here. Just a new song I've written in the aftermath of losing my wife to cancer a few months ago, about finding comfort in habits that develop over the years, but don't mean the same thing now. You might find it amusing, you might not, I'm not really sure.

The playing is a little rough in places, but it's all about letting you hear the sound of this fiddle anyway.

Or.......Josephine's Waltz. I picked this one up at Winfield this year and can't stop playing it. Also I'm happy to be playing it on a new to me fiddle. Located it at Winfield also, thanks to the folks at Beautiful Music out of Lawrence, Kansas. It just struck me as something I couldn't proceed further down this journey any farther without. It's a mid to late 1800's Hopf, with great wood, no cracks, and a very appealing tone.

Love this Jim Childress tune. Played in AEAE. I'm still working on the timing of it, but the notes are coming along fine.
