Just joined, been self taught for a year and a half as I can’t afford a teacher. Took up the violin as a challenge, I have played guitar for thirty five years and I live near Liverpool, I am going to post a video of me playing in the video section, any advice from anyone is welcome, I struggle with absolutely every aspect of violin, never imagined it would be so difficult, but that is what I like a challenge.
Bit more, bit more, snap #*÷?×?@?#?@
Hi stringy - Welcome to the forum!
Plenty of us are self-taught adult beginners here (me) - many were/are guitar players (not me).
I saw your video & think your hard work has really paid off!
There are many GREAT tutorials made by Fiddlerman here. Also, some posted by us members.
What other music do you like?
I like all forms of music, folk rock, blues anything really, I like a lot of Irish music these days. Used to go to lots of festivals at one time, but prefer hotels now, 😉
haha stringy..yeah I like the great outdoors as well but anymore after being out all day..a shower and good bed is required to end the day.
nice job on star! welcome to the forum.
hi stringy! I am from France, but now I am living in property in Portugal here. Hope you will get proficiency in playing violin!
