Hi all! Silly me letting me first post be a cry for help up on the playing the violin forum. I've already been welcomed and I'm glad this seems to be a great site which has already helped me become a better violin player (even if it only has been for a week.) really amped up to see a fiddlerman reply to posts and not be some senior executive up there high in the food chain who doesn't care about his forum. Overall happy I've been welcomed by my fellow New Englanders as well! Pretty cold out here in sub zero temps but that just means more practice time. Can't wait to contribute to forums and maybe even post a vid or two when I get better. Be safe all!!  Soldier out!!

Welcome Soldier :)  I'm not far from New England here in Montreal and it's equally chilly.  Hope you enjoy this community as much as I am.

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

Hi Sergio ... welcome from Aus, where we have a heat wave and record high temps.  So stay warm, and I will try to stay cool ...

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

.....Pretty cold out here in sub zero temps but that just means more practice time.......

When I was one of the concert masters in Gävle Symfoniorkester we had a new guest conductor visiting (potential chief conductor) called Hannu Koivula. I remember the first thing he said before he lifted his baton.

He said it in Swedish but it translates to something to this effect: "I'm from Rovaniemi, way up north in Finland and there are only two things that you can do there. Fish or make love. In the winter it's too cold to fish"...... He then lifted his baton and we played...

He became the chief conductor for the orchestra as well. :-)

Glad  that the cold temperature gets you that practicing time. ;-)Happy to have you here Soldier. Welcome to our forum and thanks for your introduction. Look forward to those future videos as well.

thumbs-up

Welcome aboard from Michigan here.  Can relate to the sub zero temps and now about 2 1/2 feet of snow we're buried under haha.  Look forward to seeing your videos and wish you the best as you progress!
