    Hey guys, I couldn’t help but post a “Devil Went Down to Georgia” video. I’ve been asked to play this song at least 10,000 times! I finally had to learn it, and have been “trying” to perfect it ever since. I’ve calmed down a little bit since doing this show about 8 years ago. 🙂 Did you guys know I used to play fiddle in Nashville and traveled with many Country music bands? Keep in mind there is a swear word towards the end of the piece (unfortunately Charlie Daniels couldn’t help himself).

    Let me know what you guys think!

    What do I remember from these days?
    1. I never thought I would be a teacher and be doing what I’m doing now.
    2. I broke at least 3 bows by throwing them up and they decided to hit ceiling fans.
    3. I was known as the crazy fiddle player that never seemed to be able to sit still (I’m sure you couldn’t tell). I’d be drenched by the end of a gig.

    The biggest thing that I miss about the performance days is that it all was just about having fun. Music was about “letting it rip” and borderline exercise. I’ve calmed down quite a bit since these days as you guys know, but I still thought I’d share! Hope you guys can eventually have as much fun with music that I was having during those times.

    This was awesome Michael. I did that song from 1979 until my accident in 1986. You are one heck of a showman and heck of a fiddle player and a wonderful teacher.

    Thanks for sharing! I think it’s great that the same instrument can be used for classical music, country, or jazz depending on how the musician is in the mood to play! ?

    Looks like a lot of fun!

    Wow!! That was fantastic! I would have never thought that you were so rambunctious!! I love it. Thank you for sharing. Now I’ll feel more comfortable when I get all crazy once I learn a great song like that.

    Glad you guys enjoyed it! It’s a lot of fun performing music in front of people. I highly encourage you guys to try out even if it is just for one person. It’s not as hard as you think and can be fun once you get comfortable with it!
