This will be my only fiddle post on banjo hangout. A lot of members have wondered if learning fiddle would help their banjo playing and I must give a resounding "yes!" for an answer. Also, my alpha-fiddler and I get into spats now and then and don't play together for months. So until we act mature and apologize to each other, somebody has to play the fiddle on occasion. Why can't fiddlers be normal like us banjo players?

Hey, I really like the mandocello in the background. Excellent playing!
And the fiddle ain't too bad either. ;^)

Thanks Dock; wish you lived around here so we could play with you and get to know you. Check out "Feo" at the Fiddle Hangout. He has some great material posted. Now Jimmy, you know darn well that to play in one of those Missouri fiddle contests, you have to play tunes in F and Bb and about five times faster!
