Bha Dòmhnall Riddell BEM, nach maireann, à Cnoc Odhar, faisg air Inbhir Nis. Bhiodh e a' cluich na fìdhle, a' sgrìobhadh ciùil agus a' dèanamh fhìdhlean. Bha e cuideachd na Mhàidsear-pìoba anns na Lovat Scouts. Am measg nan sgoilearan aige bha Donnchadh Siosalach, Brus MacGriogair agus Iain MacPhàrlain.

Anns an earrainn èisteachd seo, tha Dòmhnall a' bruidhinn air mar a bhios e a' faighinn gleus ceart air na fìdhlean.

'Now the one thing about a fiddle - a good instrument - it's been discovered that all the fine old Italian violins that are, the capacity of air inside the body of the fiddle - which of course has a vibration ratio - it vibrates at 256 cps (cycles per second). That is 'C' on the piano, providing the piano's the right pitch. And the way I calculate if I've got the right pitch is I put my lips close to one of the 'F' holes, or sound holes, and make a chromatic slide, up the way. Whenever it hits the frequency of the vibrating air there's a rebound, a resonance comes into it, and then you can just hold that and refer to it with the piano and it's got to be exactly that. For example, you see, this is, this is how it's done - mmmooooo' - and that is 'C'
