Hello. I just got back into practicing and performing on the violin again after not having been able to play for most of the summer  due to bad shoulder pain. My doctor thinks it's  an injured rotator cuff in my left shoulder. The pain started back in June after  I was moving some furniture around. The pain was bad enough where  it was hard to life my left arm over  my head and very  hard to hold much less play the violin. Not only did this disrupt my practice but also disrupted my playing with the orchestra that I belong  to. Finally the pain and discomfort and stiffness has subsided and it feels good to be able to play the violin again. I am back to attending  my orchestra rehearsals and back to  practicing at home as well. Tonight I was able  to do one of my longest practice sessions in months. It's great to be back again.  🙂

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.  

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
