"Thanks for the encouragement I am working at it. I can tell by looking if the notes are 8th, quarter, half and what not... But I constantly have to use FACE and count to figure the value of the note.."

"Actual there is a lot of violin tab out there many good ones can be found at https://100fiddletunes.com/. I have tried by ear unfortunately I am not really good at it. I am also not good at reading music but I am better at that than doing it by ear…"

"The only things I've been able to find are either pay to see or just notation. Like Richard already stated, tab is for fretted instruments.  have you tried doing it by ear? First find and get used to playing the melody. Then experiment on…"

"Good luck, most stuff I've seen related to violin were never tab related as tabs are usually helpful mainly in a fretted instrument, not that you might not be able to translate it somehow, but I'm not at all helpful in that area. Sorry"

"Don't think I've seen a regular 6 string tab let alone if anyone has done a 3 string tab yet, maybe you could figure it out with just knowing what chords are used, if this helps, if you figure it out, post it here, would love to hear it…"

Jim Morris replied to Bobby Wallen's discussion Fiddle String Recommendations
"Sorry to tell you Bobby but most squeaks and squeals are caused by bow technique rather than string quality. A set of high dollar strings squeaks as much in my hands as do a cheaper set. With that being said, better strings can definitely improve…"

Most of us are very open to all levels of playing. Cat beat against a tree sounds like a pretty good song title. I actually know a tune called Nail That Catfish to a Tree that I might play on my next fiddle build! Here it's played by the guy who wrote it.

Hey Bobby, thanks for the friend request. I like the builds you posted. Now we need to hear them! You may have noticed I'm more into old style acoustic instruments than many folks around here but I still love cranked up blues style sometimes too!

Geese Bobby. No idol here. Thanks for the kind words though. Your comment made my day. Otherwise I'd have to face failure. I spent all day wiring an EZ solder amp kit from Guitar Fuel. It was anything but EZ. I have a dead short in my attempt and no amp! So I've ordered a No solder model and will replace my failed junk. Hope your build went better than mine today. .. Dave
