Just stopping by to say hello, so um ... hello! 🙂

I've been learning the violin since 2015 (although I'm sure it sounds like I've only just picked it up hehe!) - really glad I've found this site though, looks like a goldmine of information and help!

Welcome to the forum, @VirginViolinist 🙂 I started playing in 2015, too (late July I think). I've been on here since I first ordered my violin, and it is a huge help, even if all you need is a pat on the back and be told "you can do it!" haha.

Lots of great info and encouragement all over on here 🙂 We all love the violin/fiddle and love to help others along on the journey 😀

A goldmine of information and the nicest fiddlers you'll ever meet. 🙂

Thanks and welcome to the forum.

Looking forward to reading more from you.

  Welcome @VirginViolinist - good to see another UK-side member.

  Although it is somewhat premature, I would draw your attention to "The Traveling Fiddle" which is currently doing the rounds of 4 UK members - check out the thread http://fiddlerman.com/forum/th.....ty-violin/ - it would take some reading - there are close to 1300 posts - but - read the first few to see what it is all about, then jump on to page 56 to read about her UK adventures - http://fiddlerman.com/forum/th.....n/page-56/ 

  Obviously she has a planned "schedule" and list of hosts to receive her - but there is no harm in getting your name on the list - eventually she'll revisit our shores - it took about 4 years to get here - so maybe she'll be back in the UK in another 3 or 4 years.

Enjoy the forum ! thumbs-up

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

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