This is my first post on boards, even though ive been reading here for years strangely enough! (Apologies if this is the wrong forum)
Anyway, i recently bought a cheap fiddle because I want to take it up, ive been playing mandolin for a while so I thought id give it a go. In any case my knowledge of fiddle workings is practically zero, but one thing im having problems with is tuning it up because whenever i do the pegs slip right away and won't hold. There are also small tuning adjusters below the bridge but id imagine these are for fine tuning?
Sorry for my ignorance on this subject but hopefully someone could give me some advice? Ive heard if you rub chalk on the pegs it helps, and im going to try that when I get home from work but im a little dubious and dont really want to be disappointed again....
