Is there a way to ‘stealth’ my fiddle into the session without ppl noticing?
I feel really stupid bringing my fiddle to the session before Ive sussed out the vibe. Carrying your instrument is like waving a big flag showing everyone your intetions.
Its hard to conceal too though not the hardest of all instrumetns surely :). I tried to put the fiddle in my biggest rucksack and it fits but the bow unfortunately didnt fit and would protrude out the top.
I dont have a car to stash the goods and besides I only live two minutes away from the session, but not so close as its very easy to run back and forth getting the instrument from home.
So im thinking the only way is to be ‘brave’ and come out the closet from the get go carrying it proudly. It feel really self conscious though walking into a place where i dont know anyone waving this banner ‘i ama musician’ when i am not yet a comfortable performer. The laymen dont know what level im at and before ive had drunkards shouting ‘give us a tune’! and the like and hasstling me to play which makes it worse.
