Review of Fiddles Under $500
Thank you, John. However, forget the cruise ship! I think I would have more fun sitting in the park with our merry little band of fiddlers from BGD and playing some really neat tunes with you and them, and then heading to the (Green) Dragon for a flagon or two of ale afterward. So much less expenditure: That is, unless it is steam powered with sails! Now THAT is my type of ship!
And don’t worry, Johnno! We will hit the Caribbean another time, and when we get to your name sake tropical island (Saint John), we will have a blast that you will never forget!!!!September 30, 2015 at 2:05 AM #27316
Great Scott, that sounds fantastic. Which brings me to my next point… You have demonstrated here that for the price of a weekend cruise, one might instead purchase a fiddle that would bring far greater joy, fun, and relaxation. It seems like a no-brainer to me! (No offense intended, my headless friend.)
For the full effect: Buy a $500 fiddle, turn on your favorite “Sounds of the Sea” YouTube video, and play Waterbound until the tears flow. Carnival cannot hope to compete with that kind of experience!September 30, 2015 at 7:09 AM #27317

No offense taken, my good man. I am trying to make a smile as I say this, but even my will-power can’t seem to conjure up a smile without a head. So sad, because I had such a great smile! 🙂
Yes siree, my astute young fiddle master; if only people realized that they could invest in a beautiful European Master violin instead that would hold its value or even appreciate in time… AND give them the wonderful tone and experience they have been searching for in a violin.
I have taken your advice and have downloaded the “Sounds of the Sea” video on Vimeo (Uselesstube and Dailypoopoo suck); and I am now putting on my neck-to-knee bathing suit and fitting my water wings; and I have my trusty bucket and spade at the ready as I relax in an early morning bath of cold salted water to give me a sense of reality as I pretend I am on Saint Thomas splashing with the turtles under the morning sun. Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside! 🙂October 2, 2015 at 2:33 PM #27388HeyMikeyParticipant
Thanks GS, I’m really enjoying it. Just wished I had more time to play it.

Awesome, Mike! Here’s to more time. 🙂 The TRUE commodity.
Great Scott, sometimes fill the sink up with warm water and put my face in it just to pretend I’m snorkeling in Waterlemon Bay. If only!October 5, 2015 at 2:18 AM #27458
Hahaha!! I hope you move the dishes first! Otherwise…
Heaven only knows what happened to the cutlery! 🙂October 6, 2015 at 2:10 AM #27463
Is that a plate and a cup-holder? How handy! Why did I never think of that? I wonder if he owns the patent…May 6, 2016 at 1:40 AM #36259
I just bumped this up to it’s own post. In the meantime I read over it again… Still such a great resource! I appreciate all the effort that went into this.May 20, 2016 at 3:34 AM #36632
You are welcome, my friend. I will be adding some more spices to this eye-boggling review shortly. So hang in there!!!! 🙂May 20, 2016 at 3:38 AM #36633
PS~ Will someone please call Guinness World Records so that BluegrassDaddy can be a well-recorded part of history.May 20, 2016 at 4:40 AM #36636
I called them! I told them to expect either the world’s largest house of cards, or else the most milkshake ever dispensed through the nose.May 20, 2016 at 9:04 AM #36640
Great thread, very funny too! 🙂 🙂May 22, 2016 at 2:49 AM #36699
Great Scott, thanks for the update. The post is looking great, and full of relevant information. You have outdone yourself!May 27, 2016 at 12:01 AM #36799
Scott is now finished with this amazing resource. If you haven’t checked it out yet, now would be a good time!May 27, 2016 at 9:31 AM #36812
Thanks, St. John. I guess I pretty much covered the major players, and I hope people find it an informative reference.
Now I can move on to doing my in-house review of French Cheeses and French wines for another site. I love the Bordeaux region in Summer! I will also be doing my travel destination review for that same site– “The Best Vacation Destination For Under $5 “. I might leave a few excerpts in a thread here at BGD. 🙂May 27, 2016 at 10:14 AM #36815
Scott, I used to cross my eyes and mu mother would say stop they might get stuck that way. Yours can’t get stuck, they never stop! 🙂May 28, 2016 at 1:16 AM #36826
Ditto to Rock. I love the new avatar, Great Scott!
Best destination for under $5: Tarpin Creek. I’ll tell you all about it one day.May 28, 2016 at 3:50 AM #36832
Rock, I was never able to cross my eyes as a young whelp, but as I grew older, I began to notice things and objects on my right side were suddenly disappearing out of view and appearing on my left side for a moment or two and then switching back to my right side. Really plays havoc with driving a car! And forget about trying to photograph anything! Sheesh!May 28, 2016 at 4:09 AM #36833
When mamma told me to stop poking my fingers up my nostrils, I don’t think she knew back then that I was really just stretching my nostrils out to make way for bigger things. 🙂
Are you referring to Tarpin Creek or Tarpon Creek? Whichever it is, pray tell — I am all ears!!!May 28, 2016 at 9:40 AM #36836
Scott, sorry about your problem but I am laughing anyway! 🙂
