Been lurking for a few weeks now.
As a kid I played violin for a few years at school. Eventually lost interest so the whole thing fizzled.
So here I am 25 years later. My interest has been stoked again. Unfortunately, I haven't retained much from when I was a kid.
I guess you could say I'm a beginner for the second time..
Welcome George! ... er ... Mozart ...
And especially to a Queenslander ... OI OI OI !!!!
Now you've piqued my interest ... I always thought violins were particularly ambidextrous instruments. In all fairness, I'm not a leftie and I have a lot of trouble making my left hand work fast enough in quick passages. Always wished I was left handed so I could handle that better.
So, do you play a (back-to-front) leftie violin?
If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.
Hi Robyn and thanks for the welcome!
I've read lots of stuff on the internet regarding whether the violin needs to be 'left handed'. I take most of it with a pinch of salt, and some of it is actually a bit comical.
I'm going to start a thread somewhere to share my experience and views, and hopefully get other people's views as well.
