Hi Captain Fiddle or Ryan,
I have ordered beginner fiddle tapes from you and they helped greatly. I would be interested in getting mail and I thank you very much.
My name is H.W. and my address is.....
I have several if not all of your cds. I find them very helpful and very rewarding to learn something by listening. I am an adult fiddler that just started teaching myself 3 years ago. Ok so I learned Jesusita Lindo Polka, great song! Fun to play!
I found you on the net a year or so ago, lucky me. I ordered the cd's for learning fiddle, I was a little premature for your cd's but I'm glad now I have them, so much to learn by my self.
Gallop, New Mexico
I've been playing along with your tapes since November of 2000 and I just went to my first Fiddle gig and was actually able to play along with my friends. Thanks so much for the CDs they have really helped!
