Thread Name: Midwestern fiddling in the 1850s
Subject: RE: Midwestern fiddling in the 1850s
Contortions? In the video of Truman Price linked above, he seems perfectly comfortable, not contorted, and his fiddling sounds good.

I wonder if holding the instrument further away from the ear prevents or lessens the hearing damage which violins can cause.
