FiddleandViolin

The FidDle is the same MusicalInstrument as the VioLin.  Essentially, "fiddle" is used to described a violin when the violin is played in a FolkMusic (i.e., TraditionalMusic) or sometimes a JaZz style.  One very slight difference between fiddle and violin occurs in American (e.g., BlueGrass and OldTime music) fiddling: the ViolinBridge is shaved down so that it is essentially flat.  This makes it easier to play DoubleStops.
