Which do you like better, fiddle or violin?
Fiddle - Alison Krauss
I like some good fiddle.
There are times when a violin is in order.
Depends on who is playing it.
I play both but enjoy playing fiddle more than violin. I have to admit, though, if I'm locked up in my room all alone I can get lost in a concerto. Why do y'all like fiddle better? I like to listen to good fiddlers but ones that... well, are not so good, kinda get on my nerves.
"Cuz I'm a bluegrass man from head to toe,
I wanna hear the songs of Flatt & Scruggs and Bill Monroe,
They could play so fast, they could sing so high,
I'm a bluegrass man 'til the day I die."
I guess I choose violin, because I love classical music better.
Do any of you play? I love to play both fiddle and classical. I have to try out for regionals in January, I think it is January, and I am NOT looking forward to it- tougher competition. I have only been playing about 4 years and I knew absolutely NOTHING when I started. I had no ear whatsoever. It is a good thing that I REALLY wanted to learn b/c I had nothing else to keep going on. I don't know why I wanted to learn, I had heard fiddle once and don't even know what style of fiddle it was, who it was or anything. I g2g eat so I'll finish later.
Yeah, so as I was saying... I, of course, didn't know the difference between fiddle and violin so I ended up taking violin lessons. I didn't enjoy it and the only reason why I practiced was b/c I wanted to learn. Hmm, that sounds like a contradiction. Well, if you don't understand you'll just have to ignore that last statement. Yeah, so anyway, to make a long story short I've been playing fiddle for 1 year. I went to my first contest in February after I had been playing for 3 months and I got 2nd place!! I have had lessons about 2 1/2 years out of the 4 that I've been playing and I LOVE to play! I LOVE to listen to good fiddle music and well, yes, violin music too!
For those who don't know the difference between a fiddle and a violin, there is no difference. It is just the style.
Violin is classical, orchestra, concertos, ect.
Fiddle is country, bluegrass, hoe-downs, ect.
I thought a fiddle had a red neck.
Just kidding, got that line from our violinist in the church orchestra.
A violin has strings
a fiddles got strangs!!!!!
Is there any difference in the bow?
Violinist usually have their bow tighter than fiddle players.
