The only thing that steel and fiddle have in common is that you need to work on and be constantly aware of your intonation. Apart from this they have nothing in common whatsoever.

I would never advise a steel player to take up fiddle with the expectation it will improve their steel playing. Fiddle technique is extremely difficult and there is very little payback for years of effort. In the meantime you'll be taking valuable seat time away from your steel. If you really want to improve your steel playing work on your intonation. That's when people will start paying you compliments and you'll start to enjoy it yourself.

John - I saw you about a year ago in Maggie Valley, NC with Moe. It was one of the best country shows I've ever seen. Your playing was great.

Tommy D. - you're forgiven. Very Happy
