I am by no means a professional, but to me the difference in sound is, the fiddle has more license to not follow the strict rules of violin playing as much. It is faster paced usually, more hoppy and dancing-like… I don’t know if this is making sense…but i guess what i’m trying to say is fiddling is more informal or whatever. Maybe try swaying around to your music, playing outside, or dancing in circles to let your jamming loose. in other words, bend the rules of formal violin playing a little!
