  • Re: Tune query

    Sounds like the source is well in your head, even if you can’t remember who it was. 🙂 Osmosis is a good way to learn tunes!

  • Re: Looking for popular Glasgow session tunes

    Very interesting Lonnie, a Glasgow in Montana! Our accent and dialect is very particular and incomprehensible at times, even to other Scots! I know you’ll be made very welcome, both at the Babbity and at the Islay Inn.

  • Re: Screechy E string challenge (fiddle, obviously I guess)

    I second the Eudoxa (Gold plated ones look a bit too fancy for my playing but they don’t cost that much more IIRC. E-strings come fairly cheap - unlike my tungsten viola C string)
