Hi,

I've been interested in playing the violin for at least 15 years. I've finally made plans to make that happen in the near future and figured I'd get a head start. A friend of mine recommended me to here as well as giving me lessons on his violin. I really enjoyed it and look forward to continuing.

 

I started in music about 14 years ago with guitar. In the last five years or so I've taken a long deep descent into synthesizers. More recently I got into modular synthesizers from making music to soldering and building modules.

 

Musicwise I grew up listening to classical and have since added various genres of metal and industrial/electronic.

Violinwise, I'm interested in more dark and unnerving intricate classical pieces as well as folk (e.g., Scandinavian).

Anyhow, I'm glad to be here and can't wait to start learning and playing.

Cheers!

(imagine a modulated voice, like Frampton might use in "Do you feel like I do") (google it) A warm welcome and howdy from down over here, well, maybe up or across......depends on where you are I guess. Hello anyways!

Ah yes, Brian!!  You made it over to the forum!  Most Excellent!!  As you can see, everybody here is.....just.....well.....awesome!  If you ever need any type of help, just ask!  You'll even find the forum topics on the technical aspects of recording, frequency and sound!  I'm sure you'd love that!  

Like I told ya before, this site and all the people here, were instrumental to my learning experience.  I couldn't have asked for  better start! 

We need a "Fiddle & Beer Brewing Night" now! devil-violincheersdevil-violin  Got a new brew kit and a new books of simple tunes to rock out to!  

Let the good times roll! :D

LMAO!!  Your intro, @frozenkore was so good, Pierre had to welcome you twice! roflhats_off

 

I think he did that in mine as well......well over a year ago, now! :D  I really wonder how he does it with hundreds of alerts and emails a day!  ......but, it just shows that he has passion and dedication!

What can I say, I'm just a friendly, welcoming kind of guy. LOL

What this really shows is that even though I have a GREAT memory.... It is VERY short. ROFL

BTW, welcome to the forum Erik. ;-)

Goodness! This has been quite the welcoming! Thank you all :) .

"Fiddle & Beer Brewing Night"

Hmm... that sounds like trouble... I like it :D

Helvetika said

Indeed!
Folk metal / Viking: Ensiferum, Equilibrium, Fejd (not really metal), Eluveitie, Blackguard, Finntroll, Korpiklaani, Moonsorrow, Amon Amarth, Ásmegin, Windir, etc.

Symphonic metal: Dimmu Borgir, Nightwish (Tarja [be quite Eric]), Fleshgod Apocalypse, Midnattsol, Old Man's Child, Sonata Arctica, Symphony X, etc.

Some are better examples of the genre than others.

Good times! And a double greeting from the Fiddlerman himself!

Thank you all again, and I look forward to partaking more.

Cheers!
Brian

@frozenkore 

Ok I don't know what happened there....I was quoting the bands you were mentioning and where did my part go?  off into the wild blue cyberyonder I guess.

Anway, what I was saying was that Nightwish's "While your lips are still red" was probably the inspiration behind me taking up the fiddle/violin.  Then I said i really dig the goats head bagpipe in Eluveite.  Which I happen to be listening to right now.

so lets try this again.

I think that has to do with all that rosin dust that's been going around all these years! LOL  ......and thanks for the warm welcome!  ......again!  rofldancing

 

@frozenkore   I thought Equilibrium was more of a South American/Inca/Indian Metal band?!?  Especially after hearing Unbesiegt!   devil-violin (one of my favorite songs by them, by the way! LOL) Thanks for telling me about them all those years ago!  

Unbesiegt by Equilibrium:
