A "Teach Yourself" method for the basics of

"Hello, we just this moment rec’d the above book! Thank you so very much for such super

fast shipping. The book & dvd are Christmas gifts for our son who injured his hand quite

badly 18 years ago. Prior to that time, E. played violin in a bluegrass gospel group. He had

been in the group since the age of 12 and was a member for 14 years. He’s never played

since; but recently as he says….”I just felt a spark of interest getting back into playing

again.” That ‘spark’ has grown dramatically.  Again, thank you and your staff for sending us

Left Handed Fiddling at this time. Your efforts will make our son’s Christmas one to be

remembered! May God bless all of you abundantly. C. M."
