@Billare Nope, I have been using that idiom most of my life. No idea where it came from.

comment How do you transition a Suzuki-method violin student to the fiddle?
Thanks for the comment, it is good to hear what another Suzuki instructor has to say. We have mentioned this to her, but she only does classical, and that is fine with us. She encouraged us to pursue the endeavor. We are also geographically limited when it comes to camps and such. Just one of those things I guess. Does you wife have a recommendation on a beginning fiddle book? My son is almost to the end of the Suzuki I book, just a few songs left.

comment What are some good strategies for preventing Diaper Rash?
My wife and I let both of our kids "air dry" after cleaning them before we put a diaper back on. Same goes for right after a bath. Sure there were a few accidents but that is why we laid them on blankets and towels.

comment How do you transition a Suzuki-method violin student to the fiddle?
That is an excellent suggestion. I had not thought to do that. There are some bluegrass players that come to our farmers market I will make it a point to ask them.

comment How do you transition a Suzuki-method violin student to the fiddle?
@Lennart Not really the same thing. There are different bow methods, the instrument is tuned to a different pitch, the actual music differs as well. Most classical music is sharp, bluegrass and the like is sloppy, when compared. Andrés Segovia and Eric Clapton, both excellent guitar players. Completely different results. Thanks for the comment.
