It's Here!

Let the sqwaking begin!

My goal tonight is to try and get it tuned (with the help of my husband the musician, hopefully).

And then....SCALES! Mmmmm. Look out.


  1. I played one of those for approximately 7 years when I was a kid. I may or may not be able to answer questions you might have. I have a pitch pipe though if you don't. Well technically I have the whole setup still. Maybe I'll bring it over some day or a large jug and we can play a jig or two. Hahaha!

  2. Hi Tara,
    I found your blog via Cold Antler Farm. I'm also taking on the summer fiddle challenge. Woo hoo!

  3. Sarah - I think you should come down and jam with me! I'm trying to talk Jerry into playing a jaw harp or learning banjo, and I think my brother can play the mandolin. ;-)

    Good to meet you, Nancy! I can't wait to hear how everyone does!

  4. Hey Tara, I saw you over at Cold Antler Farm. Good for you starting the fiddle playing! I am excited to follow along on your playing and everyone else's too. Hopefully it will inspire me to keep trying to play my banjo. I need to learn more than two tunes! Good luck.

  5. Hope the playing is going well....i'm scratching out a few beginning notes/tunes....
