I'm on Day 7 learning the violin, and I've been studying exclusively with Fiddlerman's material. "Lightly Row" and "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" were my first songs, and I am now practicing to ensure that I've memorized and refined "Amazing Grace" and "Scarborough Fair". I'm also working on my first scales and trying to improve my bow control.
What were the first songs you learned on the violin? What were you playing by the end of your first month?
My 1st piece i've learned was Clint Masell - Requiem for a dream. I played it at night in a silent place behind a graveyard, along with my friend's cell phone =) It was in 2008 (Ah, beautiful times ). Then, when i really started to learn violin with my teacher, at the end of my first month i played a song from Russian cartoon, that is not much more difficult than "Twinkle, Twinkle" LOL! But that was much more productive =)
"Twinkle, Twinkle" was first for me, as well. I've been playing with "All Creatures of Our God and King," once I stumbled across it while monkeying around one night. I''ve scratched my way through all the Christmas music that FM has made available over at Violaman.com (or the Dark Side, as we like to call it), and most of them are actually recognizable. Not good, mind you, but recognizable – like a toddler's drawing of a horse in the wrong color.
