I am currently studying how to play the fiddle. As an adult student, with absolutely NO music background, I won’t lie – it’s been very challenging! But OH so much fun! The fiddle is nice because you are allowed a bit more of your own style than with other instruments- it’s a bit more *relaxed*. It has such personality and spirit.
Here is what I am currently working on: an Irish tune called Lament for Limerick, a slower tempo than the others I have practiced. It has such a heartbreaking and melancholy tone to it which is wonderful. The man in the video does a really beautiful job with it…hopefully with a lot of practice I can sound like this one day. Enjoy!
