Hollow Poplar, 3/4 fiddle for sale demo

Just a demo for a fiddle for sale. The recording isn't the best, just a simple cheezy computer microphone, so the volume level is kinda low. The playing is not wonderful since this fiddle is shrimpy and I couldn't get a shoulder rest to stay on, causing some instability and uncharacteristic left hand noise, but at least it gives you an idea of how this fiddle sounds. It's also closer to a classical setup, rather than the fiddle setup I'm used to. Given all that, the fiddle itself sounds pretty decent for what it is, at least to my ears.

Thanks for posting that bj!

I'd heard it before, and kind of liked it,
but you put a little something in your version that made me HAVE to learn it,
and I just did!!!
Thanks, I needed that (a new tune under my belt!)

Nice job playing there. Good intonation.
Cute little fiddle, too, at a good price, for someone.
Good luck with that.

Nice bj! Yet it's not in 3/4. More like 4/4. Okay okay. Good intonation, tone, thanks for sharing.
