Hello all.  Just a bit of introduction.  I'm 58 years old and make my living as an Electronics Engineer.  Fiscally Conservative-Socially Liberal however have no patience for either extreme. Business partner. Gun Owner. No longer religious.

Yes, I play fiddle and have been a stage performer for 30+ years. Any other players in here?

I dabble in classical violin. I played in school orchestras for 7 years, and still practice from time to time, but never took private lessons  Undecided

It's never too late.  Still, you can always play for your own entertainment and to amuse the audience.

Hi Fiddler.  I played a banjo for the first time last month--that's as close as I got.  Well, technically, it was a guitar-banjo hybrid.  Oh, I also used to play a bass viol in school.  That was fun.

Is it similar to a cello?

Different intervals.  A cello is tuned in fifths. A bass in fourths.

Cool.  Don't stop playing. For me it's the perfect de-stresser.

You play standing up but it's tuned just like a bass guitar.  No frets though.

My preferences are piano and guitar.  It's been decades for each.

Decades of playing or of not playing? That's the question...
