Not true. You'll find that many professionals call them a fiddle much of the time. It's kind of a term of endearment or a musician's slang. Fiddle music is also a style of music - indigenous to certain areas, esp. of the US. But it's all played on the same instrument, made essentially the same way.

<<all in unison>>
"Thank you Mrs. Thier"

(I had a feeling like I was back in grade school listening to my teacher)


I'm popping in for a quick bite. Actually, my cottage cheese isn't what I really wanted, but I don't have time for a pan of manicotti florentine right now... so does anyone have one lying around?

Thank you. I will mention that to the snob who told me not to use that term. Heehee!

Oh, geez. Did I have the bun in the back and the red pencil over my ear again? Sorry! I spent so many years teaching my kids and violin students, I guess I slipped into instructor mode...(There WILL be a quiz. )

I like the term "fiddle" - makes me think of real folk playing their instruments from their hearts.

That's what it's all about...for me, anyway! If I can't touch hearts, I don't care to play. I'm working on Celtic music right now -- Irish, Scottish -- and that goes right back to my ancestral fiddle roots.

I'll take the Yorkie!! I haven't even decorated my room yet, can't decide what to do with it. I was thinking of something in mauve & burgundy.

I'm off to trim Savannah's bangs, plop her in the tub & start the ice cream churn. I'll see y'all later tonight or tomorrow!
