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.

98636c6ee64925a19858f8a491d300d2.jpgHi 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 also like all forms of music. I was one of the only violinists in the orchestras that listened to Rock and Pop as well as every other genre.
I was the one who would jam if someone wanted to, though my folk chops are not very good. LOL - I sound way too classical when trying to play folk music.
@stringy - I'm glad that you like the challenge. Hope we can help you here.
