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.

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.
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
