How can I learn fiddle???
I am really a bit desperate about my fiddle learning. After some years of violin learning I decided that fiddle is what I want to play. Some weeks ago I attended a fiddle workshop in Scotland which was really great (though I had to find out that fiddlers don’t need sheet music). Anyway I’m back in Germany now, learning my fiddle every day (I can play 5 tunes now without sheetmusic - which really gives me a very good feeling) but I can only learn tunes which I have on CD and where I have the sheet music to. I can’t learn a tune by ear or only by sheet music, because then I don’t know how it shall sound. I can’t really explain, perhaps you know what I mean. Now, it really is extrem difficult to find a fiddle teacher here in Germany. Has anyone of you any ideas how I can improve my fiddle playing? Without teacher? Is this possible? Please help me!!!
