Bump has t
views...about the fiddle...Biscut (the No 1 Cat ) has views about Bump and Lizzy, not a cat but a real wife, has views about me...so we all rub along nicely LOL.

Chris
I've tried playing the fiddle on a number of occasions, and if I could get it sounding as fiddle-ish as this I'd be very happy.
Good to see you around the rattly halls here at MJ.
Cheers from a chilly Oz,
Neil

Thanks Mo...
It is a bit odd not having frets BUT at least if you fluff the note it is easier to slide to home base....Cheers

It's good
With a bit of editing it would be even better! Good progress since March, however.

Drowsy Maggie
Great to hear you back around, Chris. The fiddle is such an enigmatic instrument. I had one ages ago and could never get it to sound much good. Suspect it was a lousy fiddle :-) Anyway, you are doing better than most, here. Take care.

Love it muchly.
Your playing is very accurate and most enjoyable with great rhythm, I'm envious of your talent. I like Bump too, makes me feel quite sad looking at her as we lost our own little tortoiseshell at the end of last year. She was twenty and now for the first time in my life I find myself cat-less. Thanks for posting youe wonderful track.

Cheers Woofer..
Bump is an unexpected bonus, she just tipped and settled in...no coaxing or the apparent ususal beggaring about on both sides....of course Biscuit the reident No 1 Girl was absolutely disgusted !! Bessy mates despite the 5 year age gap...Bump's 2 and Biscuit's 7 , Thanks for the listen. Cheers

Sorry?
I don't think so. For a guy just starting on the fiddle you seem to have a knack. I love the trads, especially those with celtic roots. Nice to hear you again Chris!

be well friend!
