Happy (belated) St-Patrick's day..!
I don't like recordings either..! Especially when comes the time of sharing on the web...! But as you will note, in the Just Fiddling Around group, there is only love for fiddle tunes... and no room for competition..! The idea is simply to be an insentive for everyone to open the case, grab the bow and make noises..!!! ;-)

Take care, and again, thanks for joining in..!
