An old friend gave me a fiddle; another gave me a bow, (loaned indefinitely). I don't even know how to tune it!
I was shocked when I went to buy a set of strings, $20.00!

"O mio babbino caro" can be played in any number of styles, Dan, whether you call the instrument a fiddle or a violin. Look at your email.

Kendall, I can help with your fiddle tuning if you still want help next time I see you.

Thank you Maeve

no problem if you other folks aren't interested. I can play it on my classical guitar just fine. I would have liked to hear it on a fiddle, violin or whatever the hell you choose to call the thing. I should know better than to ask.

I think of my fiddle and violin as two very different instruments even though they're one and the same. Under my chin, it becomes a violin; over my arm it becomes a fiddle; when I play freely-improvised atonal sonatas in the neo-classical style (think Erich Zann in a melancholy fug) it is a violin; when I accompany myself on The Marla Hill Ducks it is a fiddle.

PS - I love 5-string banjos, but have certain problems with tenors, 6-string and uke types.

Didn't Bell do well?

Mind you, it's harder in the right key.

Suibhne I'm not surprised that your improvisation goes atonal if you don't hold the thing properly.

It goes atonal when I do hold the thing properly!
