I am a bit of an oddball. I am starting to learn the violin. I am left -handed and I have an okay musical background. I play guitar and a bit of piano and ukelele. I hope to add violin to my skills as well. A pleasure to meet you all.

I am so glad to see your and Louise's replies. I just hate it when I get into a long line of people and there I stand,  the last person in line and nobody gets in line behind me. Jeez... I feel like such a loser.

The search for great technique does not always lead to great music, but the search for great music does always lead to great technique.

Welcome Noah to the forum,

I'll personally Guarantee you your not the only Lefty here on the forum, or the only odd duck on the forum 😱

Welcome to the forum @Noah !

Hey, "oddball" - nah no way - when it comes to picking up violin, even we righty's are all a bit "left-field"- we're all a tad crazy here !  It works !

Enjoy your violin journey, and your previous musical knowledge will certainly help.

thumbs-up

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
