Hi Jim. I used Sibelius which is a very meaty program and doesn't come cheap. There are other but most don't do 3 string TAB. An exception is Progression for the iPad, they may do one for other systems as well.
I'd be happy to TAB out your arrangements, although can't guarantee they'll be as quick as the last one. Would you mind if I hosted a copy of them on my site as well, LearnCigarBoxGuitar.com, I'd offer them free and credit you with the arrangements.
I will probably never build a "real" fiddle. But I do like the idea of taking a lost, beater of a violin and putting it in some sort of working order and handing it off to some kid who might love it and play the hell out of it.
What a great vid! Your fiddle sounds better than my one does, for sure. Mine loses tone in the low strings.
I was surprised that the poobahs were not even interested in the hardanger conversion. Plus, I worked on the octave violin I have going while I was at the workshop, and they were helpful but not enthusiastic. Ah, well! I sure learned lots of trick on how to make a real fiddle play as best it can, and that will be a great help. It was a wonderful workshop, regardless. Up in Madison, WI, five days of tweaking and rebuilding.
Mr. Morris, I'm embarrassed, but you sent me a message over a year ago and I never seemed to have seen it until today. I don't know if it was lost in the internet or I am just blind, but I am indeed, even now still looking for a good cigar box fiddle & if you still make them, I'm very interested. Can you contact me by my e-mail, firstname.lastname@example.org to make sure we get in touch? I apologize, but hope to make contact, even at this late date! Thanks!
thanks jim for your comments,i am familiar with jason romero as a banjo builder and he has some really nice banjo,s very high end stuff.i dont think we are related but i watched a cool video of the romero banjo company recorded and interviewed by frets magazine and i can honestly say that jason looks like one of my brothers from louisiana. thanks again.
