Hello everyone, i'm not exactly that new to this site. I have been conversing on the live chat for quite a few months, those who go there regularly would probably remember me. Anyways sorry for keeping you all waiting, looking forward to meeting you all!

I started playing around the end of January, oh boy how time has flown by... almost a year now and looking back at the progress is just incredible. Sadly I cant even remember most of when I first started to pick up the violin I practiced so much during the first few months its hard to remember it all.

After learning through online sources and awesome people on the net, 8 months later I decided to find a teacher to really maximize my potential. Been going well.

Oh and I wouldn't be taking part in this awesome community if it weren't for the amazing people at fiddler shop. Those guys really deserve support, never in my life have I seen such honest businessmen, you guys rock!

Anyways I guess ill leave it at that, hopefully I will share some videos or audio tracks during the end of December. If you wanna know anything else about me just ask.

Welcome Alfi - another "ex-lurker" - trust me - there is rarely any drama here - everyone that contributes to the forums are "at their own level" - be it the fundamentals of music side of things, techniques for playing, luthier-ship (if there is such a word), beginners, advancing players, true experts - you name it they're all here - we do it - all folks bring so many different and worthwhile things to these pages.  

It is amazing how much a year of study and effort can bring you.  Great to hear you have found a teacher - wish I could find one locally!    And, of course, share your performances - I look back on my early ones around April this year - hmmmm I'll say no more - well - it "was where I was" at the time - all cool !

Glad to have you aboard!   Enjoy the journey !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.  

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

@coolpinkone - lol at "food luck" typo CPO - hahah hmmmm foooooooood ( as Homer Simpson would say )  - now I feel the "nibbles" coming on..... gonna have to raid the fridge... LOL - maybe even find a  chilled "Duff, Duff, the greatest stuff" beer lurking there ... ( oh, I'm living inside a TV cartoon episode...  reality returns.... sorry about that !)

[ So yes, @alfi - you will also find a certain degree of mild insanity here as well ! Best to just run-with-it... lol ]

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.

Thanks Pierre, I'm definitely planning to share my progress. Right now i'm finalizing the Violin Concerto No.2, Op.35 by Oskar Rieding. Its a Beginner piece and its what my teacher wants me to master before I move on. I should have something ready by the next week or so :)
