Now I have a violin and am starting to get a bit more involved on the forum I realise I haven't really introduced my self.


Hello, my name is Sam I live just outside of Oxford, England. I have a wife Rachel and an eight month old daughter Alice. I work as an IT systems admin, which is dull.

I have enjoyed many many types of music over the years but I have always had a thing for the violin and folk music, I find it haunting and it tugs at my soul.

I had planned to by a violin after Christmas with any money I could gather, however I have been lucky enough to be lent one on an as long as I need it basis. So I have decided to put all thoughts of purchases out of my mind until I can at least play twinkle twinkle to my own satisfaction. This could take years 😉

When I was harbouring vague thoughts about self teaching this site gave me real hope that it could be done, thanks to all of you who have helped me so much already.

Nice to officially meet you Sam,

Welcome officially to the forum wink and site. I'm glad that you have real hope to be able to learn to play well and I am pretty convinced that you will.

So happy you got a fiddle now too. Look forward to all your future posts.
