Thread Name: Help - violin or fiddle?
Subject: RE: Help - violin or fiddle?
I've played for a couple of professional orchestra's and the conductor's have always called the violin sections 'the fiddles'

I have to admit that I tend to play some folk tunes and give them a classical feel about them. I have classically trained since I was 4 years old and I am grateful for the discipline and the habbits I have picked up.

I refer to my violin as a fiddle but I also call it Fritz (Im sad and give my instruments names......please tell me I'm not the only one!!)
