Hi Everyone,

I am 36 years old and started violin two and a half years ago after wanting to play since high school. It has been challenging but rewarding. We have just moved to the Cayman Islands so I have no teacher at the moment but I am soldiering on, on my own for the time being.

I am hoping that this forum and the fiddlerman can help me to improve on a few things.

I look forward to getting to know some of you as well and maybe tapping into your insights so that I can learn alot more.

In the beginning you'll do almost everything wrong. I'm still doing things wrong, but have managed to subtract a few of the wrong things for the right things. As time progresses you'll do more and more of the right things. That's the thing. You need to replace the wrong things with the right things.Eventually you'll be doing almost everything thing right. Sometimes it won't seem as if you can ever get there. Even the best players still occasionally do the wrong things, but they are so good you probably can't tell....unless one sneezes during a solo or there is a minor earthquake.

Fiddlerman has some good instruction on the right things!!
