Hi all. I'm new to this forum and the chat. Love the fiddlerman.com website and am very happy to be able to connect with other new violinists, as well as experienced folks. I'm especially pleased to find other adults who are learning to play. I've taken up the violin at nearly 50 years old and loving it. I have played the guitar for almost 40 years and have also played the flute, fife and recorder. I got my violin about a month ago and have been making some progress on my own but will start taking lessons this week and hope to find out what I'm doing wrong.  Looking forward to learning more through this forum.

I've learned so much from my mistakes that I've decided to make some more.

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! Yes, you can call me Scratchy...or Kinda. I've been called both already in the chat room. In fact, I'll answer to just about anything. 🙂 Nice "meeting" everyone.
