    Hi Carolyn,

    Very kind of you to say all this, thanks 🙏.

    I would like to do a lesson on the Larry Walters hornpipe! Every year I update the Irish fiddle Journee’s course with new lessons in March. I don’t wanna make any promises, but I would love to add this horn pipe.

    Cheers,
    Jason

    I hear a little buzzing sound when you play A1 and D0. How much did you pay for the fiddle?

    Thanks! I just fixed this on the page. Here’s the correct dimensions for tape:

    The quick version
    Place the first tape  36 mm from the nut.
    Place the second tape 68 mm from the nut.
    Place the second tape 82 mm from the nut.

    Hey @hrkorn4,

    I haven’t taught a lot of lefties, but the ones I have taught seem to prefer left-handed instruments. If there is a violin shop near you they could probably set it up for you.

    Hi @megan. To improve your timing, focus on playing quarter notes on open strings with a beat. Pause every once in a while to just listen to the beat. Make the beat loud and feel it in your body. Then try eighth notes. Next, just listen to half notes with a beat. If you can hear it, you can do it. Also, try to PLUCK longer notes with a beat. You’ll get this, don’t give up…

    It might be good for you to write out tabs and the standard sheet music in the line above that. Have you tried this?

    Hey @nick. This sounds like the basic idea of drone tuning: using reference tones to play particular notes in tune. You’re just using an external device. It sounds cool. I kinda want one too…

    @moonshadows, do you find this form of tablature to be easier to read than the FiddleHed tab system?

    Hey @roserock123yahoo-com, this is a common challenge. I would say that you could alternate between lifting the low second when you play the third, and then trying to make that stretch with the low second down. Your fingers will become more flexible soon enough if you keep practicing. Also, you can practice the stretch without even playing. Hold down the low second finger and practiced reaching the third without making sound.

    I’m going to ask our developer to make changes to the forum.

    I just replied to your Si Bheag Si Mhor post. I noticed that I was not credited with that post, but you were. I think you’re saying that any reply would appear as a new post with the replier’s name. I also see that my post didn’t show up at all in the forum table.

    I’m also thinking of adding the Newest Forum posts to the Home Page, underneath the new lessons feed.

    Let me know if there’s anything I’ve missed.

    Thanks for posting @moonshadows. But the tabs are for ukulele…
