Hi Matthew. Frets on a fiddle? You mean play in tune? Why I never!

i love what you do Matthew. So just do what you do. I’ll dig it.

I’ll size the neck for a D. You can mark it up if you wish. I don’t use a specific scale length but I can easily do a specific if you tell me the length you want. :^)

Now I know Matthew. What key do you like to play in? The length of the neck determines the key. G is a cello string long neck. D and E are short viola size backs.

Matthew. Hand tools rule! I use some power tools but they are old, worn out relics like myself. :^)

That’s great Matthew. It will take me a while too but i’m On it. Do you like the cigar box fiddles I make? I have some wonderful vintage boxes begging me to build with them.

Hi Matthew, I still don’t know which fiddles you refer too as your comment appears on my “comment wall” and is disconnected from the photo you’re looking at.

Hi Matthew. I’d love to trade a two stringer with you Matthew. I’d love one of your fiddles. I’ll make one for you if you’ll make one for me. I love the look of yours and they sound so good in your hands. If you do want to do this, leave room on the headstock for a second string so I could add one in the future. ... Dave

Thanks for the nice comments about my ceramic endeavors. My life’s path has always been in the arts. My passion has always been in music. We share those paths. Great to walk with you Matthew.

Likewise Matthew. I love your 1 string fiddles and the music you coax out of them. Your haunting voice adds so much too.

Thanks Matthew. I’m not sure which fiddles you refer to. I sure like making these little 2 stringers.

Glad you like it.   I mostly play key of G with those, open G, 1 finger Em and 2 fingered C and D.  They will play other keys.  That was a simple and fun build.  And now I am I the mood to do another.
