Reply To: Does size really matter?
Fiddles are all different so to play a different fiddle you do different things. Some are wider or longer or the strings are higher from the fingerboard – by itty teeny amounts. Your body will adjust to this, but it needs some time to make the adjustment. Using a fiddle that is so much different will take so much more adjustment. As a beginner this can slow your progress. Just more thoughts on the subject.
