GUEST,catsphiddle@work Tuning a Fiddle (51* d) RE: Tech: TUNING A FIDDLE 10 Aug 05

Pauline....Most classical violinists have a fine tuner on the E string not the A. I personally have had fine tuner's put on all my strings since I stopped playing classically most of the time, purely because it is easier to tune in a session...Im lazy what more can I say!! I haven't found what you haev found Pauling about classically trained people not being so helpful. Everyone that I have met, folkie and classical, over the 21 years I have been playing have been most helpful with advise and coaching.

I do agree though that lessons are important...for tuning and posture etc so you don't fall into bad habbits.

Good luck and enjoy!
