Anahootz Advice please!!! - memorize fiddle tunes? (34) RE: Advice please!!! - memorize fiddle tunes? 11 Feb 02

If you are serious about the changing instruments part, then consider a mandolin. Think of it as a fiddle with frets and extra strings.

A point that I didn't see made about fiddle tunes is most are just ascending and descending scales, with little "hitches" and "hooks" thrown in. If you know the key, just noodle around until you find a progression that fits both the tune and the scale...I will assume that after 17 years you know your scales fairly well, hmmm?
