Exactly what I've been looking for - thanks! It's so hard as a beginner to work up the courage to jam with more experienced people, especially if they play a different style of music, and this may just provide a key to blending in for me.

Cat, I am a rock n roller. Make sure though that you take your time and learn the proper violin techniques. Practice all the great free lessons here. Practice scales and hear the tones. I'm going to really try to tackle the blues on violin and will post what I learn here.

That's cool ... thanks for sharing.  I've wanted to get into blues for a long time, and was even contemplating buying a guitar to diversify a little.

This looks like fun.

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

My advice to those of you who love the blues is to listen to a lot of blues as well. Listen to the great guitar blues players and try to imitate their style.

Here's a link to a blues violin book I bought (won't have it for a few days) but will let you know what I think of it when I get it. I love playing the blues on guitar so thought I would venture into this style. on violin. Glad to see there's others that like the blues too. I wonder if there is a way to mount a harmonica on a violin. Ok that's a little strange. My wife laughs at me when a use a harmonica holder when I play the guitar with harmonica. she says it looks like I have braises from hell.

I think that sounds like a great idea. As long as you can play the harmonica whey not try it. serenade

I look forward to hearing the harmonica blended in.

I have a briefcase full of harmonicas. The bass player of my band (rest in peace) played with Sugar Blue (played most of the harmonica parts for The Rolling Stones in the seventies). I learned to play a pretty good harmonica. Still play almost everyday. But, i'm here to learn how to play violin and not get a monkey to clap the cymbals for me 😉 

 

Something different to do Fiddlerman. I know in my lifetime that I will never be able to catch up to you on the fiddle. But maybe one-day we can write a song together...
