"Thanks, Rupert.. when I called Full-Time, it was a great attention-getter & conversation-starter. Sometimes, it was a job-getter. Not many square dance callers running the country, & fiddling on a tune or two, so it was a unique experience…"

"I play in a big band (40s era, only) and in a dixieland band. While I play bass for the big band, occasionally I'll take my EV to dixie gigs along w/the banjo. Some of the guys in the band don't like the EV, coz its not a traditional dixie…"

"Rupert! That slide violin is quite interesting, and your song, worthy of applause. I've fiddled around w/slide banjo in years past. Slide fiddle never crossed my mind! "

"Sherrie, u are so right! Altho, this group of ppl are not gonna let me see the music, until I arrive. I have been assured by the composer/arranger that I'll be able to play  just fine. I said to him, "You hear me play every…"

Kevin Robinson replied to Julia Schulte-Strathaus's discussion Any tips on how to be better at vibrating? in the group Violinists
"Hello, Ms. Julia. Have you already started practicing vibrato? Kind of as a guide, at what level experience would you say you are: (not age, or school grade) How many years of lessons so far? or "absolute beginner"? Those kinds of…"

Kevin Robinson replied to Sherrie Hoyer's discussion Question about converting an electric violin to viola..... in the group Electric Violinists~
"Two Reasons I'd Be careful, and perhaps, allow a TRUSTED violin shop to handle this, at least, initially. • Violins are made to hold together at a certain tension. Viola strings would change that dynamic. Depending on the model of violin…"

Kevin Robinson replied to Patrick McGreal's discussion Carbon fiber in the group Violinists
"CFV = Carbon Fiber Violin ► Con: Not as open & woody sounding as a wood violin. Seems like the sound is inside the instrument saying, "Let me ALL the way out" You do get a decent violin, its not philharmonic playing, recording worthy.…"

Kevin Robinson replied to Caitlin MacGregor's discussion Electric Instruments or Amplified Instruments in the group Electric Violinists~
"Caitlin, it depends on the *sound* that you are after. I've noticed most electric violins (semi-solid or solid) have a character that sounds like a violin, but it does not sound like an *acoustic* violin. My electric sounds great thru an…"

"▲ UpDate!▲ Now, I'm home practicing. Working w/all the bowing ideas presented above.   ☺ As a side note, Laurel, my copy does not indicate the trill in meas 10 at the dotted-1/8th. I like it tho. I've also tried the 2nd position idea…"
