Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong, when I play doublie stops I often squeek.
How long does it take to learn how to play the fiddle well. I started when I retired at 53. Now I am 58 and while I do play many songs and read music and tablature. I still squeek on occasions, hit the note eith sharp or flat sometimes, It takes me practicing a song 200-300 times before I could perform it with some success. I am beginning to get discouraged. Should I quit or keep working at it?

Practice, believe me its in the practice. I played for 19 years, then not for 20 I again squeak, miss my fingering all that good stuff. I did forget how relaxing it was!
Hang in there if it feels right! There are many "Fiddle" players out there that dont mind playing with a new player. Check out your local Bluegrass Fests
