Hi!

Ive always wanted to learn violin since I was a child, but my parents couldn't afford it. I was given a clarinet and played for several years picking up saxophone as well. Later learning guitar (sort of lol).

I am 36 now and have still had the urge to learn so after looking through this site for several weeks picked up my first violin yesterday and am going through all the tutorials I can watch...haven't made it past the g string yet though! ?

Welcome @Ogre ! Nice meeting you in the chat, too.

Good luck with your new violin. I'm sure you'll find this site and the people here -- especially Pierre (Fiddlerman) -- helpful along your journey. Fiddlerman rocks!

Keep us posted!

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

Of course you don't know me...but the "Old Ogre" does... ha. Enjoy yourself, dedicate your life to it, give up sleep and food and family interaction and you will one day be a wonderful violinist... oh wait... never mind...dazed

LoL

Have fun man... that's what it's all about... bring happiness to everyone who hears you play... some when you start playing, some when you stop.dancing

Welcome @Ogre !   So we now have two Ogres !   ( And what with Leana and Leanna, and Leane my PM's to the wrong person will get even worse..... )

What's more important - is - enjoy  the journey - it's great fun !

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

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

@Ogre,

Welcome to the site. It is wonderful that you are now able to follow up on your long-time dream. Keep at it and you will soon be playing tunes you enjoy.

I started on the other end (E string) and am still playing mostly on the A and E strings!
