Thanks, Norbert.  Just Fidel.  Like Prince, no surname!

Very nice. Your friend Fidel (surname Castro??) sounds good :-)

Thanks, Nancy.  It would be fun getting together with Dave.

Thanks, Andries.  Purty cheap build.   And 5 or so minutes practice most days for a couple of months. 

Thanks, Mike.  That is why you look so sharp!

Aw shucks, guys.  I really do not seem to sound as good as in the video very often.   And thank you for the kind comments on my hair cut. 

Poorness, it is a three string, but I had one string loose and to the side.  It's easier to bow only the desired string with 2 strings and I am finding I can play a lot of songs with 2 strings. 

Daniel, let's call it last fiddle.

Thanks Dave, Fidel is purty from a few feet back and that padron box makes good tone and volume.

Pick.  That.

Thanks, Denbo.  I intend to play a few minutes most every day and see what happens.

Ha, Richard.  That would be quite a feat - sax and fiddle at once.  Glad to please your neighbor's dog and maybe next year at Cali-fest, I will bring my buzzer and style your hair.

I’m listening to angels playing harps this morning Uncle. But that’s beside the point! I’m really impressed with your playing, high learning curve ! Big quality sound from Fidel, you have to be proud! Hair stylist, fiddle builder and player, a  renaissance man! Be the first to play Iowa sax and Fiddle simultaneously......if anyone could....My neighbor’s dog likes it...a lot! Just kidding, love this video John!

Pretty darn good Fidelity there for a beginner UJ. I expect good tunes will emerge soon. You have a wealth of material in your musical & hairdressing style to go at :))
