I'm a long time musician, bass for 35 years+, keys/piano for about 25 years and guitar for 10. I've always wanted to learn to play the violin and cello so I recently got into it. I ordered a NS Design WAV4 Violin and WAV4 Cello. I figure I can use them with my existing amps and pedals, and eventually get acoustic instruments once I get my feet wet. I can also apply music theory I already know but I know I'll have lots of dumb questions for you all 🙂

Leaviathan,

Welcome to the forum, and the fiddle and cello, ask away on questions that's how we all learn.

Hello @Leaviathan and welcome to the Fiddlerman Forum!

If you have a lot of dumb questions, I won't feel so alone since I ask a lot of those kind of questions, too! blink

This a an excellent forum with a lot of friendly folks who like to help one another. And, of course, the Fiddlerman is second to none!

So nice to have you with us.

@Leaviathan - Welcome to the forum.
Ask all the questions you like regardless of how dumb they may seem to you.
Things that are obvious to us are only obvious because we learned it at one point.

Thanks, I'm in Bourne right by the canal, I've gigged lots on the bass but mainly working in my home studio now, producing originals. I'd like to do a cross between New Age and Classical, ambient, a little progressive and experimental.
