What I meant to say is that this sounds like a hoot. I especially like that they seem so open to allow "any" acoustic instrumentation, as I play a number of things, er.... (I'm guessin' they're instruments, in the right hands).... that don't fit neatly into any particular format, category or style. I end up getting the hairy eyeball from some due to the many preconceived attitudes by some folks concerning the original or intended use of these items. Innovation can, and often does, spawn this sort of response. It's only via continued persistence that we, who choose to push the boundaries of acceptability, can hope to sway these opinions. Louie, I very much appreciate your overtures regarding openness.
I'd love to learn to play fiddle and have several but I'm afraid my explorations have not led me in that direction as of yet. Some day soon I hope to have more of a chance to get more deeply involved with it.
