  • Queenie: What are your top 10 go to tunes. Tunes that you could play without thinking about it.
  • figmeg: For people on chrome not getting the broadcast I did this and it worked: In the address bar, type chrome://settings/content. On the Content settings screen, find the Flash Player listing. Check the status. Select Allow sites to run Flash
  • tunehappy: Do you have a recommendation for rehair in Asheville?
  • Pomers: Nope Chrome, Firefox, IE...not a thing - just the error message :-(
  • coreydimario: Thanks for hanging in there with the tech, everyone. A lot of browsers have now started to disable flash by default so you need to ok it in the settings.
  • coreydimario: We're hoping to move away from Flash in the coming months.
  • Dusty Stringz: I get an annoying and somewhat painful callus on my left-hand fingers, especially the index... any advice?
  • JoJo: what tuning was Going Across the Sea in?
  • Pomers: That doesn't seem to be the problem. The message I'm getting is Error loading player: No playable sources found. Haven't had this problem with Flash content before.
  • Bob T: I have calluses as well and use an emory board on them when they get painful
  • Dusty Stringz: It's more like a blister under the callus... med strings. Maybe I push too hard. I'll check the setup.
  • david-mepsted: Got any exercises to improve intonation?
  • LoFat: What fiddle and tuning did you use for your recordings with the Lonesome Sisters? Great records!
  • habibanola: struti box? app
  • Rodney Larcom: Really been working at just using the wt of the bow while playing and just adding a little more pressure with accents in phrases. It is really helping me with tone. Is that kind of what you do as well?
  • Rayna: sruti box
  • LoFat: What fiddle and tuning did you use for your recordings with the Lonesome Sisters? Great records
  • Bob T: Do you have a warmup routine?
  • LoFat: yes
  • Dusty Stringz: It's so reinforcing to hear that you get 'rusty'. Do you also go through slumps?
  • hayesdt: Anything wrong with using a Tourte rubber mute to reduce harshness of tone (in playing Old Time fiddle tunes)?
  • Queenie: Do you have any classical technique, that you use when playing the fiddle?
  • Rodney Larcom: awesome!!!
  • brubart bought reward: "a signed copy of "Workin's Too Hard"!"

  • brubart: just checked & found many "shruti box" apps online. Great suggestion
  • Rodney Larcom: While your in ADAE can you play a little Swannoa waltz? Just to go over the pulsing technique again that we went over a couple of weeks ago..
  • Dusty Stringz: (Don't need the golf tees)
  • mwardenb: What are the words to the tune "Wish I had My Time Again" on your Uncle Earl recording. Hard to understand some of the verses.
  • Rodney Larcom: Thank you!! :-)

      Although the tune was not one I was familiar with, I enjoyed Rayna's teaching of it a lot. The extra time that she spent with explaining some of the techniques she uses to produce her unique "Old Time" sound were very helpful. Cant wait for the next one!
