Hello all, just joined today after watching many of Fiddlermans vids on YouTube. I am a 25 year old college student who wasted a couple years on something i ended up hating so now its back to the beginning for me lol. I only recently became interested in the Violin when i caught the end of this guy playing on the radio as i sat in walmart parking lot.
The moment his bow touched the strings and sound came out it was like my soul quivered and tears poured from my eyes and i knew what i wanted to do.
It's to put how i feel in words but it's like i 'need' a violin and know deep inside that i can not only learn to play but become good, despite starting so late in life. I don't actually own a Violin at the moment, being a college student i really cant afford one, but i have been watching tutorials all the same and practicing with and invisible air violin lol.
Anyway i am really glad to have found not only Fiddlerman but this site as well, and look forward to getting my own Violin as well as meeting people who share this new found love i have for this wonderful instrument.
Welcome Darc. 25 is not late in life haha, you are barely starting it! For your violin, check this http://fiddlershop.com/instrum…..n-200.html
CVN-200 is only $99 and has good reviews. Well within a college student budget!
Welcome DarcFiddler! Haaaaa, yeah, you are starting pretty late in life, lmao!!!!!! A lot of us on here who are also new to the instrument are over 50;;;; so no, you clearly did not start too late, haaaaaaa.
NV's advice is great as far as buying your first violin on a budget; FM's Fiddlershop is a great place to check out; he's a HUGE help to us all.
Ya because going to a luthier for handmade is eek! on the wallet. Just this morning I checked a good reputation luthier in Canada… violin = 20k I almost fainted. Ok he's a winner awards that might crank up his prices… heck why didn't I learned this art instead of going for archaeology? They sure are not eating Ramen noodles (even if not award winners).
