      Introducing Eva the 109-year-old German-made violin – my new (old) purchase. I’ve been at this exactly one year. Eva is much easier to play than my cheap starter violin. I noticed a huge improvement the second I picked her up! Teach me EVA, teach me!

      I recently took off the cheater fret tapes on the neck. Finding those notes with no frets is a challenge (says the guitar player)! This whole FIDDLE THING is a frustrating challenge…my mother said the same about Golf -frustrating as hell- but she couldn’t stop playing and neither can I! As my mom and Fiddlehed says.. PRACTICE PRACTICE PRACTICE
      Here is Kesh Jig… I typically play this fast since it’s a jig, but I thought it was really pretty slowed down to showcase Eva.

      Lovely! I really like your version & slowing down these jigs always gives a different & interesting feel. Your new to you fiddle sounds beautiful!

      Eva is a fitting name for a beautiful and well used fiddle. You do it justice.
