Well yesterday was the day I started officially teaching fiddle. And I'm grateful. 2017 was a hell of a year of personal initiation as there were a couple of huge changes,events that meant my life would never be the same again. So I'm very thankful that so far in 2018,while I'm still working thru some non musical stuff, I'm now able to pursue teaching as I've wanted to do for a couple of years now.
I'm presently teaching Carter style guitar,too,and the used Oscar Schmidt I picked up in 3/4 size is wonderful. A beautiful blue,it's a joy to play.
Unbelievable that the 4th of July is nearly here! Where did the year go? Good grief it's nearly time to start working on carols,and plotting out the 1st Halloween I'll be celebrating in many many years,complete with a jack o lantern on the porch. Looking at what tunes would be suitable for Halloween.
And also on tap is I'm getting back to making fiddle accessories (fiddle blankets,rosin puches,and wipe down cloths) as well as instrument straps that work for banjo,guitar,mandolin,ukulele (providing it's got a strap button at the bottom) and Appalachian dulcimer.
Wishing you all a very safe,sane,and happy 4th!
