Violins that Speak for Themselves

Welcome !

Here you will find information about the instruments I make; what I currently have for sale; what they cost; who plays them and how to contact me.

 500 Violins

As he has been hinting for some years now, Tim is planning to stop making when he completes his  500th violin. After just finishing number 468, this leaves only 32 to go !

We all have to stop work sometime, so there could only be a couple of years left to get that violin you’ve always wanted. They won’t be available forever…………

The Charlesworth Hornpipe
Written by Sam McGrady
3/2 Bm
.
Sam wrote this tune in 1988 while he was working on the Northern Frisk Collection with Jamie Knowles and Pat Chandler-Knowles. Pete Cooper credits him as the composer on the CD, which he recorded as part of his online tune collection. It was written for Dave Godwin who lived in Charlesworth Derbyshire. Dave played Piano Accordion and guitar with the Bilbo Baggins Barn Dance Band with whom Sam played fiddle for many years. The tune is popular with musicians around Saddleworth in Greater Manchester.

Application of the tune
Good for dancing and goes well with 'John of the Green, the Cheshire Way'

Tutors Notes
Bridging is a very useful technique to work on in this piece. It is also not a bad idea to work on bow managements trying to keep the bow relatively cantered for all of the string crossing.
