Earlier this week there was quite a discussion on just what constitutes a soapy tune Peggy and I were chatting about awhile back. Still not certain I know for sure which is which or if the soap should get thrown over or under the fence. lol The tune I'm familiar with has a lot of similarity with an other OT tune called Durang's Hornpipe. No doubt in my mind the tunes are closely related and Durang's Hornpipe is likely the older of the two. Just for yahoos I thought I'd try playing both together in a medley.

Thanks Lee - yeah, I agree. I used to worry about making a lousy vid,  Then finally said to myself - what the heck, you knew you'd never be any good when ya started foolin with a fiddle 10 years at the age of 73.  So might as well just have fun making a fool of yourself.

FYI, you are a better fiddler after ten years than I was after 20!!   It is all about fun and the more we interact with each other the more fun it gets.. Some people don't want others to hear them fiddle or to see what they look like.. Hiding behind a persona... which itself shows a lot.. !! Cheers..

I agree it's fun to watch someone play, and makes them more like a "real" person than an internet "phenomenon..." lol. I'll be the first to admit I'm one of the ones who hides from the WORLD WIDE WEB, you guys...lol...that's scary...I hide behind my presonus recording machine. I'm even a little terrified at that, but at least I can just sit there as long as it takes to try to get a decent recording. I can't stand to be on video...normally if I see myself on video I start stuttering, shaking, sweating and fumbling, can't play my instrument right and just feel so uncomfortable and panicky. I just can't do it. But Rich, I'm happy to watch you and enjoyed it very much...so...more power to ya! Thanks for sharing it, live. I agree with Lee...it's much nicer to actually watch the online friends play.

Love seeing you play in person! :-)

I really like playing in the low "baroque" tuning too.
( I'm not sure why the pitch of A keeps creeping upward as time goes by...dunno why we didn't stay with the A=415...)

I think Rich Maxim (The Violin Beautiful guy) made some comment on this awhile ago. It had something to do with formation of larger orchestras in the 17th and 18th centuries requiring violins to play louder. As a result they were build a bit stronger and tuned to higher pitch which allowed greater volume. I may not have all of this correct but I'm sure Rich will step in and make any necessary corrections.
