When I was in 3rd grade I was taking violin lessons and going to John F. Kennedy elementary school in Newark, CA. My father took me on a visit so see relatives in Colorado. We saw my grandfather, Clinton Reed West, who was a painter and a lover of music. He played the violin and had an extra one that he gave to me. It was a Strativarius copy. I brought it over to Gryphon Strings recently and had a quick appraisal: made in Germany in the 1920's, low $.
I was thinking the other day, if there are tabs for the guitar, banjo, ulkulele, dulcimer then why not the violin / fiddle?
