Have you listened to . . . or better yet, have you watched any bluegrass violin lately? 

Technique is not always the best among bluegrass fiddle players, but watch their dexterity!  Bluegrass players I have spoken with never seem to think the violin is hard . . . they say it is fun, and they play it that way.  They don't worry about how they look.  All they seem to care about is how they sound.

I like to practice in front of a full-length mirror for two reasons. First, it lets me look at my posture for technique. Second, it lets me SEE if I am taking things too seriously.

Listen to some Bluegrass if you get a chance. Go to a concert or a jam if you can arrange it.  Introduce some fiddle tunes into your repertoire.

It's good for your technique.

It's good for your attitude.

And it's good for your smile!
