This tune was taught to me by the Madison County fiddler Rodger Howell:

Absolutely lovely!!! Never heard the song before. I'll look for it the next time the movie comes on. Great job!

Actually, it sound Scottish to me... and it's so pentatonic,
that in a way in sounds Chinese- appropriate given the source of the instrument!

Very, nice indeed. This is great stuff to listen to in-between my practice session.
Thanks Hardy

Lovely playing. Did you put reverb on this track or is this the natural resonance and presence of this instrument? If the latter, I don't see why some people slam Chinese instruments, unless they've just encountered low end stuff which every country probably produces. That is deffenitly ? top shelf tone.

I added just a very little reverb. Anyhow, this fiddle would have been sold in New York or Chicago for 30 to 40K.
I "stole" it and I'm very happy with it.

Reverb. .....un-necessary Hardy, anyway u pla it, it'll still be tha best. U'r very intimidating. We'll always be "fumble-fingered-fiddlers" in comparison. We hate ya Hardy ( LOL ). Oooo....jus paint us "envyous green".

I have no comprehention of what "stealing" means when it comes after 30-40K, but I would guess that obviously buys a lot of "presence".

Just a note... while this fiddle is an awesome instrument -- It's Hardy's skill that brings it to life. When he plays my grandpa's fiddle -- an inexpensive German trade/factory fiddle from the 1880s -- his magic comes through. I can only hope that a bit of his magic will wear off on me!
