The other day my cat came in the room and knocked my violin down. Nothing broke but boy was it out of tune.  I wanted to get it close brfore using a tuner.  Was I surprised.  The D, A and E were right on and the G slightly high.  I never belioeved I could ever do that.

It happens right? I know. When I hear music I actually feel the fingers on the fingerboard. Makes playing by ear and jamming much easier. Congratulations Kevin, it'll only get better. Be sure to harvest that and do it more often to engrave those notes in your memory.thumbs-up
