Hello everyone. I have been a long time lurker on this forum so I thought it was about time I sign up and say Hi <- That's a classy way to say hi. I'm 25 years old living in Queensland, Australia. I have loved the violin since I can remember, my grandfathers old neighbour played all the time and I would listen pressed up against the fence and my favourite song to hear is czardas. I watched all of FM videos and thought … I'm buying myself a violin! I look forward to meeting all of you and reporting on my progress as well as hearing yours.
hope this helps.
Thanks so much Kevin M that was a big help for me. I think that's the one for me
Welcome as well from the "left coast" of the USA.
I've done some sound analysis on a few CVN 500's and they all have been very, very good. I don't think you can go wrong with that model for a first instrument. You'll have it for a long time…
Look forward to the vids.
Welcome to the community James! Feel free to ask as many questions as you wish, everyone here is helping each others and Fiddlerman is extremely active on the forum also! Don't be shy for the videos a lot of us are beginners so the squeaks and scratching sounds know us by out names!
I had an Aussie cricketer from Queensland stay with me a couple of years ago over the English summer when he played for my local team.
Do you know/have you heard of Reece 'Macca 'McDonald from the Gold Coast?
Think he still plays for Southport Labrador after getting a ban for ranting on Facebook.
Welcome James!!! Good Violin to start with. I don't think any one who has played long at all has only one Violin.
GUILTY… [raising hand]…. I now have three!
I know what you mean Dennis, I now have 3 too. What the heck, its only money.
I'm seriously thinking of giving my cheapest one away to a close friend I go competition shooting with because he's pretty tight on money and really has voiced a desire to learn to play. I figured if I gave it to him, he'd be really appreciative and feel obligated to me as well. Maybe I could use that to my advantage and in the future get some bullets or powder for reloading from him in return because he'd feel guilty. LOL
