First time to do a linocut (cutting on a piece of linoleum instead of a woodblock) using different tools (Speedball linocut with three different size gouges.) Faster and different cutting and printing experience, but I still prefer the feel of wood.

They laugh and they dance at their weddings
When I fiddle a merry tune.
They weep and mourn at their funerals
When I fiddle them a slow, sad dirge.
They clap and cheer at the county fair
When I fiddle through the night till dawn.
But come the day for my final rest,
There’ll be no one to fiddle for me.
I’m a hopin’ I’ll hear some melody
That’ll lead me to the open gates
Where St. Peter will be a fiddlin’
To welcome my weary soul back home.
