Hello all.
I have been playing guitar for 35 years (dabbling with mandolin and mountain dulcimer although not quite that long) and it would seem as I approach 50, my mid-life crisis will be learning to play violin.  I found this place as I am researching my first purchase.  It's a real treasure trove of information for us newbies!

Welcome.  Jump right in. 

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

As luck would have it, after mentioning learning violin - a friend tells me he just upgraded and offered me his old one.  So I'll be starting with a Hoffman concert.  I think the first song I will attempt is "Cat Being Strangled To Death" in G major...  Now off to fiddleshop.com for some rosin and  a shoulder rest!

Welcome to the forum!  Have fun learning to play with your new (old) violin!

My neighbors probably want to strangle me for all the noise I've been making.  But hey, "no pain, no gain" right? Except, they feel the pain and I get the gain (I'm really sorry, neighbors :-S)
