Hello ๐Ÿ™‚ I'm Marta and I'm from Poland.

I've been playing violin for 11 months now. I'm moving to Scotland this year (to Inverness) and I hope to learn some Scottish tunes. For now I've learned "Flower of Scotland" and "Skye Boat Song". ๐Ÿ™‚ Other folk songs are too fast for me, but I hope I'll get better.

I'm also learning Polish songs. I'll post them in another topic. ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a good day! violin-student

Welcome to the forum, Marta ๐Ÿ™‚ I echo Toni, I'd love to get to live in Scotland. I'd be fiddling all over and going crazy taking pictures of all the new to me sights ๐Ÿ™‚ All my hobbies would be fulfilled, haha.

Thanks for welcoming me guys! hats_off

@BillyG oh you live in a wonderful place ๐Ÿ™‚

Aye, I'm learning Scottish accent ๐Ÿ˜› I mean, I try ๐Ÿ˜€ I also want to learn gaelic when I get there, it's beautiful.

@cdennyb who knows, maybe I get the chance ๐Ÿ˜‰

@coolpinkone I've never been to California, but I've heard it's lovely!

How do you like Skyboat?

@damfino That's exactly what I plan to do exactlyI fell in love with Scotland 6 years ago when I went to Edinburgh, but when I visited Inverness with my boyfriend last year (and later this year) we decided to move there for a while. Highlands are unique ๐Ÿ˜‰

@marta - California is very very beautiful. ย I adore it here. ย I am spending more time in the mountains and trails this past few years. ย I have spent my life on the Northern Pacific Coast areas as well. ย I love the Pacific Ocean and California Landscape. ย I don't think I will ever leave my home state.ย
