I found this article and it's pretty interesting.

On "Cheap eBay violins" … Just tell people they are like a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.  With a little love, and some practice, they too can be made beautiful.

Yes, this was a very interesting article.

 My wifes grandfarther played and made violins . But had a definant hearing problem, yet he could still play in tune and had a very good musical ear.

And lord knows I have gotten a lot smarter since I began playing.dancing

I don't know but as my musical skills improve I understand less what my wife is talking about.  Must be be the exception to the rule.

But Fiddlerman can probably comment with more authority since he has played for more than the critical 10,000 hours.

Maybe the intense musical training develops a superior ability to focus on a problem or situation.
I wonder if just any person might develop similar abilities with the same training regimentation but in some other field of human communications?

Oliver,

You are like the Jack Benny of Fiddlerman.com.  I'm sure you play better than he did though.

If I were half as good as him I would be twice as good as I think I am which is much better than the real truth.
