The Difference Between a Violin and the Fiddle

Country music and the fiddle go together like peanut butter and jelly.  This morning, Mark and Paul wanted to know the difference between the fiddle and a violin.

Thanks to a listener who knows way more than we do, the Flakes learned that there really isn’t a difference between the two.  The fiddle is a violin that’s tuned higher and played faster.  You learn something new every day.

While that may be true, here’s a couple things we do know.  First, the older the fiddle is, the sweeter the music.  And, if you’re moving your foot up and down, it’s a fiddle.  If you’re not moving your foot up and down, it’s a violin.
