I just won a great ebay auction for 20+ violin books. They are "vintage" and some seem to be out of print. Here is the list.

Schirmer’s Library of Musical Classics

    A Practical Method for Violin by Nicolas Laoureux   in Four Parts
        Part 1    ( 2 copies – one like new; the other has a few pencil markings)
        Part 1 Supplement  (with minimal pencil markings)
        Part 2   ( 2 copies,  one has a few pencil markings)
        Part 2  Supplement  (2 copies)
        Part 3
        Part 4

Sevcik OP 7  - Preparatory Trill Studies for Violin
      Part 1:  Exercises in the First Position    ( 2 copies)
      Part 2:  Exercises in the Second, Third, Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Positions

The Physical Approach to Violinistic Problems - Shapiro

You got all that for $20 bucks? I just got my two books today with CDs, "Rockin' Out With Blues Fiddle" and "Fiddle Jam - A Way-Cool Easy Way To Learn How To Improvise". It cost me twice as much that you paid for my two books with CDs.

I can sure say that I am experimenting with many different styles of music but I am sticking with the proper techniques to make it easier for me to get into all of the left hand positions.

Very wise quote mgn.clap

I have give the advise of having several teachers simultaneously to so many people. Obviously, one person can only teach you there way. Acquiring the best knowledge from as many violinists as possible will help you form your own opinion and become your own greatest teacher.
