Do you want to take a trip down memory lane?

Do you recall the first 3-5 songs you learned on the violin?

Do you recall what scale you learned first?

Would love to hear what everyone has to "recall"

Well, for violin, I didn't really have to learn scales.  From other instruments, I knew the whole and half step order for the scales and modes I use.  You know, that stuff like "whole, whole, half, whole, whole, whole, half" that RosinedUp is always trying to convince new folks that it is important to learn?  Well, it actually is!  LOL 

You know that already though, you took theory.

And as far as first songs.. Well, back in the early days on violin, I used to post audio of them here on the forum. So my first few months, for better and worse, are a matter of record.

I wince a bit, even recalling my playing back then.  But at least I don't have to strain my memory to wince.

twinkle, bile em cabbage down, whiskey before breakfast... that was my first two weeks in that order.

Having ZERO knowledge of the fiddle I got some books and videos from the library before my fiddle arrived as well as watched some online stuff to get prepped . Still nothing could stop the rosin dust storm and cat killing screeches of that first afternoon.

ah, memories violin-bang

There is no shame in playing twinkle, youre playing Mozart

I listened to them all and I was very impressed.  Once the thread veered off to a discussion on intonation FM said,

I really don't know much about it except that sometimes it surprised me how little some professionals actually could hear about correct intonation. Same thing with many music performance students. Sometimes the great technicians don't have such great ears.

which left me confused, because I couldn't find anywhere in the thread where the discussion changed from violinists to violists.
