I am not sure if I like the original tabs better or the new tabs , of course the new tabs come with low and high harmony , but both versions are great ! Question , John Can Your original old tabs be played to the melody Jam tracks on this new lesson ?

    Beautiful!  I love this tune.  You three sounds so good.  Now there’s three of you fiddling!!!  Daughter #2 (sorry, can’t remember the names) looks like she’s playing really well…if I remember, it wasn’t that long ago she picked up the fiddle.  All sounding good together.  Got me wondering if I could handle this one with a little lesson help…all three of me…

    Well played! Cricket, John’s daughters are elves. Their names are Arwen and Lorien. I think in that order. I don’t know his other kid’s names though

    Thanks, Gunnar.  Sorry, John…I’m no good with names, especially since people started using more modern ones…I mean, I know the Tolkein names are actually older, but I mean I’m afraid I’m still used to names like Suzie, Sally, Sam and Seth, etc.  Lol…I’m glad at least I can remember my own grandson’s name…I guess since there’s only one, makes it easier to remember…lol.  I know when daughter was sick during time he was about to be born, and her boss let me sub for her for a few months while she could still collect her paycheck, she was an adult ed GED teacher at the time…I’d go into her class and the names…lol…wow…I just couldn’t remember any of the creative names they all had…most of them were younger than my daughter, ya know.  The older ones, like the ones at least in their 50s or older…Sam, John, Linda, etc., I had no problem remember those…lol.  Sometimes I even ask myself…”now, who in the world are you, again?”  But, that’s a philosophical issue.

    By the way, I’m the only person I know who hasn’t read the Tolkein or watched Star Wars, etc.  I’m afraid I have this aversion to fiction, even good literature fiction.  I love factual books, but not shows or movies or lit or fiction.  Even my little grandson has already read The Hobbit.  I just can’t stay tuned into fiction…my mind won’t go there.  So I don’t know any of the stuff except what people tell me about it.  I read the Dostoevsky novels in college, but that was for different reasons, and it was actually easier for me to read because of the difficulty in names involved…weird…I’m not off track here, am I?   Ooops…let me get back here…John and daughters sound awesome and I gotta learn this one.  I’ve messed around with it, but it’s never sounded right.  I guess I gotta look at the lesson and try to get it right, if possible.  This thing sounds soooooo Texas, to me. It’s absolutely one of the most beautiful fiddle tunes out there.

    update: speaking of which…grandson wanted me to watch Star Wars with him today…lol.  I guess it’s about the 20th time I’ve sat staring at it with a child…while my mind goes off in all sorts of directions and I try to be cognizant enough to react here and there in some appropriate manner…lol.  I have no idea what happens in that movie except they have light sabers.

    We have a long history of elven blood. Their grandfather’s name is Aubrey (Elf King) and their great-grandmother’s name is Elva (elf-like). My second daughter (Lorien) is really improving on the fiddle. She will be competing this year at Fiddler’s Grove!

    Steve, the old music will work just fine! I typically like to go back to the original or most popular versions when I teach a lesson, so of course I had to do the Hank Thompson version, 1955 Capitol records!

    Cricket, I can’t wait to hear you three doing this one!
