Hi all! My name is Guido. I live in a tiny Baltic state called Estonia. Am 26 years old and got crazy in the head a couple of weeks ago. Bought a violin set that is. Just received it today and am looking to get started learning it.
I have no background with violin whatsoever but it felt like it might be a fun thing to play. I have also been practicing a bit of bass guitar for about a half a year now. I guess I just felt like playing melodies to songs now and then but it's not all that great sounding on the bass. It is after all a very rhythmical instrument. Also tried guitar years ago, learned a few chord progressions but didn't really feel much like playing on. Other than that I tinker with some electronics. Build some speakers now and then. Don't really have a day job at the moment but did tiling for a while and before that repaired some industrial electronics. I do tend to spread out too much with my hobbies and job choices. Sometimes I also get frustrated from not being a specialist at anything but I guess I can't really help myself.
For now I'm quite exited to start practicing violin. I have been learning a bit of music theory and scales on the bass and that will probably help a bit too. A bit of a bummer is that I had never actually heard a violin up so close and turns out it's pretty loud. I did buy a solid steel mute as well but I'm still kinda sorry for the neighbours.
And I have to mention that I really like the videos Fiddlerman puts up here. Nice and short, quick to the point so...
