Hey there everyone! Can't really imagine ever wanting to go back to playing an ordinary fiddle. This instrument has been an absolute delight to play from the very first moment I picked it up.

I'd really love to hear the music everyone else has been making with their hardanger d'amore's, and maybe learn some tunes other people have written for it. Hopefully this wiki might help make that happen!
