Octave fiddle on two tunes, one from a lefthanded fiddler. Yearlings is at the 1:51 mark. These are almost too good to butcher with a hokey octave fiddle, but they turned out ok I thought. The heavier strings are so sluggish, I had to anticipate each bow stroke, which comprimised my timing.

Wow, that sounded great. Um, I hope that you are using a viola or violoncello bow. That will help catch the strings more and move them better for an improved responsiveness.

That was very nice playing on flappy strings...I'd try to tune down..but I think the string tension and rosin is the only the thing holding my fiddle together..Jerry
