I have been playing fiddle since 1970. I have been teaching since 1984.
I learned old-time fiddle starting in 1970. I spent a summer in Virginia and North Carolina in 1973 learning as many tunes as I could in that style. Later, (1984) I started learning swing. It was difficult at first because the bowing is so different and the harmony is more complex. But it’s what I play now. I am in 2 bands and I teach at my home in Sonora. You can see some playing at YouTube under my channel “fiddlinrick”. I also have some fingerstyle guitar tunes up there.
