I just thought I would take a few moments and introduce myself and my "precious"

 

I am 29 female.... I have been playing about 3 months as of posting this.... I really really like it.... It is hard though but i would not change it for the world....

 

I work so i dont get as much play time as i would like but make up for it on the weekends..... I do have a teacher she rocks.... She lets me pick the songs I want to practice... just as long as I practice my butt off.... She is happy and as long as i dont have to play a bunch of stuff i dont like then i am happy....

 

it was not easy to find someone who wasnt hung up on classical training... So i am happy i have her.

 

My first violin as the $99 dollar special, I got it cause I didnt know if I would like or be able to play... I always hear everyone say that not everyone can do violin so i was really nervous and didnt want to make a big investment if i didnt know if i would like it.... but i did i fell in love.... and so one day while poking around the internet looking at violin stuff i found my dream violin.... the skyinbow s1t electric in transparent blue... she was beautiful and so I contacted the manufature and the rest is history.... I even got a new shoulder rest that I LOVE the linnd.... mostly because it makes you hold it the way your supposed to so my teacher cant get after me about posture.... ha ha ha ha ha ha hahaha

 

but I started because I wanted to play since i was little we just never had the money too and one day while cruizing youtube i was like dang..... why did i never start learning and that was all she wrote.....  thats when i decided to do it....

 

Playing for me is kind of like a drug.... its the one time i feel happy and free.... i love it!

 

anyway here are a couple of pics.... and videos.....

 

The day I got my Precious in the mail....

 

Opening The box.... I actually thought it was empty.....

Welcome aboard Kelly,

I'm exhausted watching you go back and forth setting up your camera.  Great start.

Welcome Kelly!!!

Hey, beautiful violin, and nice job on "Creep" (one of my top 20 favs)!  Hearing a violin with contemp stuff like "Creap" & "Freak" make me want to experiment with electric.

Yea.  I enjoy the chat box and the FB Messenger chats we have.  Always good to find someone with common interests.  Just might have to keep you around a while, lol.clap

You are doing an excellent job, keep it up.

Whoever is sitting on the sofa appears to enjoy it too, their foot is swaying to the music.
