Both of my grandfathers played fiddle music. I can remember that when I was a kid, my grandfathers would sometimes get together in the kitchen along with some of my uncles and they would all play music. There would be two fiddles, guitars and accordians.
I was never all that musically inclined myself but I always wanted to learn to play the violin someday. I kept thinking about those kitchen parties and finally convinced myself to start playing the violin about 2.5 months ago. I am thoroughly enjoying myself.
