I'm just beginning to learn to play the violin, even though I own three of them.  I've always loved violin music and wanted to play the instrument.  But life got in the way.  I bought a very cheap violin about 10 years ago and started taking lessons, but again life got in the way.  Then I inherited my fathers violin, that he found in a flea market.  It was in bad shape but he loved it and because it was his I love it also.  

Now it's just me, my dog and my cat, and nothing to get in the way.  I spent a little more money and bought a violin from Fiddlershop. and that's how I found this forum.  I plan to follow through and learn to play.  

I would appreciate any advice.

I ordered the Fiddlerman Concert Violin.  I originally ordered the OB 1, but I listened to the videos of the two that night.  I called first thing the next day and changed my order.
