If I met the devil the last thing I'd do would be to steal his fiddle! That'd just be asking for trouble, especially when I have a perfectly good fiddle of my own.
I'm a pretty stationary star in the world of musicians who play for local dances. I'm too busy with teaching to have time for much else. I'm not in any bands that play for concerts these days. I didn't even have a St. Paddy's Day gig this year, which is unheard of for fiddle players!
cool beanses! when you say "we" do you mean you and your guitar teacher, or you and a guitar class, or what?
i've become a big believer in picks and steel strings lately. although if you're going for the mexican mariachi sound nylon and fingernails might be the way to go. i've actually been teaching a lot of guitar lessons lately, although i never intended to be a guitar teacher. it just somehow happened as a result of being a fiddle teacher.
