I recently got a proper thimble from Joel and noticed my tone is more even,my rolls more precise and I feel a renewed vigor in my everyday life.

That's not a thimble, it's my bionic finger.

I want a bionic finger!  Does it send secret messages?

Wes, those are very cool recordings.  The first one, playing Dixie, is certainly relevant to minstrel fiddle playing.  I don't hear a hint of African-American influence in it, myself...
