Hello. I'll try to keep this short... I've been lurking here for a few weeks now and finally decided to join in. I love music. I love how music can take you beyond your four walls, out of this crazy life and somewhere amazing. It keeps me sane I've always loved music and violin has always held a special place in my heart. I love when you hear a song and suddenly the violin comes in at just the right spot and transforms the song from great to amazing! Anyway, the violin has always been one of those instruments that seemed too intimidating to ever seriously consider trying, well, I'm sick of dreaming about it. Life is too short. I'm ready to give it a go! Need a violin first, but when that happens, watch out! Lol!
Thanks Fiddlerman for posting those awesome Youtube videos! I especially love the one where you play the "Dark Waltz". Absolutely amazing. You are truly inspiring.
Welcome Wallflower. So what kind of violin are you getting? Do you plan to take any lessons? You'll find this is a wonderfully supportive community.
Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
Thank you LyleA and 1stimestar for the welcome!
@Georganne - I'm not sure what kind of violin yet. I've been scouring the internet in search of information, but I'm still not certain as to how much I want to spend. I'm also unsure about taking lessons. Of course it would be helpful, but due to some anxiety issues I can't say for certain if I'll go through with it. I have a family member who has been playing the violin for about a year now, so it'll be nice to have someone close by to share in the ups and downs of this upcoming journey. And, of course, being a part of this great online community couldn't hurt
@Wallflower I have been playing Violin for about 5 years now, and learning it was one of the most life changing events that has happened in my, albeit short at only 15 years, life. I have hated some parts of it, and loved all of it. I wish you the best of luck, and hope you enjoy it as much as I have!
Stop saying you can't do it and actually go try it... Trust me it works.
Hello @Wallflower. I am Toni... been playing for less than two years...but I sound like maybe only one yearish...but catching up here lately. (work and school tap into my playing time time..grumble grumble)
I am happy to see you here. I feel the same about music.
I too love Dark Waltz... it is on my list. I will play it sometime. I KNOW IT.
Enjoy. Nice to meet you.
