In 1978 I started playing the fiddle. The old boys I played with warned me that I'd get neck problems, a 'knot' on my jaw, and ringing in my ears. Actually when I think about it, the fiddling and all the electric music I ever played can't compare to the 8 years of band in school. Wow. I remember many days in the band room when I felt like I just couldn't take it anymore. 8 years, 5 days a week, an hour a day. I call that tinnitus in training.
