My Name is Christian, but nearly everyone just call me "Chris" :). I am 19 years old and I live in Germany. My knowledge on speaking english isn't that gread, I will try my best tho, so I'll apologize for my bad grammar. 😛

I started playing the violin 8 months ago. I watched a lot of videos on people playing the violin in a classic style, or a modern style, like Lindsey Stirling. She is one of my biggest idols, besides Fiddlerman. 🙂 Since i wanted to play the violin when i even was a child, unfortunatly i couldn't visit a music-school because we weren't that rich I'll just say, I thought "Well, right now I can't visit any school due to financial problems and having little time for a school, so I guess I just learn playing the violin on my own?" And I did it, and most amazingly i do not regret it! I learned so much in the recent months, and I will do everything to make my knowledge bigger and bigger. My goal is to become a soloist and creating my own music in a modern flavour, like with Dubstep, Drum&Bass, but I also want to learn playing fiddle-music. Fiddle-Music really amazes me. I just love this style!

So yeah, this is how i came into playing the violin. I hope that I'll learn more and more here on the forums and I hope i could maybe even help you guys on problems etc. (even tho I'm a beginner still).


Thank you so much for reading my Introduction!

Welcome to the board, Chris 🙂 I feel the same way about the fiddle style of playing, and I hope someday I'll be able to play it.

Hia Chris - I take it you're the same "Drayne" I chatted to on the FiddlerChat some days ago!  Good to see you joined the community - you'll never regret it !

Good luck with your progress !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

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

Welcome to the forum Chris.
Great ambitions and goals. Fiddle music is a lot of fun for sure.
Thanks for your introduction, I believe we exchanged some words on the chat a little while back.
Looking forward to following your progress. 🙂

Hi Chris, welcome to a great forum! smile

Nice to have someone on the forum who comes from where I'm originally from. laugh
