I first picked up a violin in the early '90s. I put it back down a few years later. I still have my Sears violin kit which my teacher deemed at least adequate at the time. So now I'm apprenticed as a repair technician for rental orchestral instruments and my employer said it would be a good idea if I knew more or less how to play the instruments I'm working on. I don't expect to do recitals or anything, but 'll have to be able to play SOMETHING on my fiddle.
Over time I'll be the one posting odd questions about playing or repairing these coolest of string instruments.
