Hello Everyone 

Thanks for the acceptance. Im glad I found this site, it’s very motivated. 
I’m a shy 🙈 person, and the little red bottom from the recording cámara 🎥 gets me so nervous that I forgot where the notes should be. 😵‍💫

WELCOME (again) to the Fiddlerman Forum! 

Hope you are starting to find your way around here 😊

sometimes it's hard if you use a smartphone. 

How are you doing after 9 months of playing your violin?  

What music do you like to play?

Many of us here also started playing violin, viola or cello at an older age.

I have been playing my 5 String Fiddle for 2 years and

I have 7 Grandchildren! 

So, you are going to be a Great-Grandmother, soon? 

We ALL started out shy with the camera! 

IT GETS MUCH EASIER!

Thanks Mouse…

thank you All for the welcoming. So, I’m not the only one who’s running out of memory because of that little button 🤗. Yes I will be a great granny’s, I’m getting old too fast, 😹. I’m learning violin for my personal challenge. I like to play popular music(non classical) when I learn more dexterity I will try to learn to play Classical pieces.

My husband plays  Classical guitar (he is accomplished) and He ITV the one who has  been helping me to develop as a violinist; he had a lot of patience (I can see his face turning green when I play the wrong note🙈😹) But he is always there for me.

Im still having problem with my bowing, sometimes go to the finger board and sometimes to the bridge, sometimes I play 2 string when I it’s not needed and when it’s needed I can’t do it, 😱. I have the tendency to sing the lyrics in my head when I play a song and it’s an issue because my rhythm get lost. 

My husband and I found this site and we like all the music and video instructions as well as the group videos.

Thank you again for the welcome.

We are all pleased you and your husband found us and like the site. Spread the word. 😂 

I get lost if I hear the song in my head, like you, rhythm is lost, and I also end out hearing what I know it should be and not what I am actually doing. 

I also like the popular and need more dexterity to develop before I can tackle classical. Some of the simple classical are good for learning purposes, but anything beyond those just are frustrating to me because I am not ready.

Explore the site, and don’t forget all Fiddlerman's learning tools. They are accessed above the forum in the menu bar. His etudes for the individual strings are great!
