    ha ha ! Classic !
    A violin plays one string at a time , the fiddle plays sometimes 3…

    A violin bridge is curvy and a fiddle bridge is flat …

    A violin ends up on the wall in a glass box , in a museum , a fiddle is anywhere between here and there, travels outside and usually find them self waiting for a next fiddler in a closet somewhere …
    Just a few ,

    It actually has to do with the neck  section of the instrument. . . most violins have black neck  pieces but fiddles ALWAYS come with red necks.

    . . . no one cares if you spill beer on a fiddle

    Violin doesn’t want to chip her nails; a fiddle doesn’t mind a little dirt under them.

    A violinist in a three piece suit is called “The Maestro.” A fiddler in a three piece suit is called “The Defendant.”

    A violinist’s eyes sparkle when you aim the spotlight onto the stage. A fiddler’s eyes sparkle when you aim the spotlight into his ears.

    A fiddler slows down when you put sheet music in front of him.

    A fiddler and a violinist were sentenced to death, and were standing by the gallows. The hangman asked them both if he had any last requests. The fiddler said, “Yes, I just want to play ‘Whiskey Before Breakfast’ one more time before The violinist said, “Yes, I would like to be the first one to go.”

    A violinist wins the lottery and decides to retire. A fiddler wins the lottery and decided to keep playing gigs until the money runs out.

    Old violin players never die, they just go out of tune.

    Old fiddlers never die, they just smell that way.

    (because they’re always in a jam)
