Hello there!

I'm new to being a registered forum member, but not to the site or chat room.

About 10 years ago I had an interest in getting a violin. Although I researched several options, none of them were cheap. Add to that a not so steady job, I was forced to let the dream take to the back seat of life.

Now enough time has passed and that dream has awoken from its slumber. With a good job and money to spare, I'm working on making the dream into reality.

Whether I'm good or not depends on how much effort I put into it. Perhaps there's an inherent skill set, as I've had a grandfather who played in a Bluegrass country band.

Regardless, I hope to learn all that I can, and build good relationships with other like-minded people.

Here's to hoping you learn something new each day, and are proud of what you've learned so far.

Nice to meet you, Chris! I'm glad that things turned around for you and you were able to pursue your interest in the violin after all.

This is a great place to start. We are definitely like-minded (or is it single minded?) here. :) We all love the violin, regardless of how long we've been playing, our skill, where we live or our walk of life.

Welcome!
