My 1st song was actually something I wrote named “A West Virginian Waltz”. I wrote it for a group that I was playing mandolin. Everyone in the group loved the song and wanted to play it, but the next week the fiddle player had to change jobs and left the group. I learned to play violin so we could still play the song. Little did I know (way back when) that it would lead to so much enjoyment, meeting so many good people and a chance what I’ve learned with others.
