DB25FB18-21C2-46C0-8C9C-3C534E5DA333.jpegImage EnlargerHi All,

Luthie here…aka Kay.

just started to play this spring. Using Allison sparrow’s online lessons.  Have completed the first 10 and am working on the first song book.  
I live in rush ny but spend summer weekends in the 1000 Islands.  I like to practice on my docked boat!

 

here is a pic of me practicing in the yard while I enjoy the water view.

I bought a bubble g1 to get started.

look forward to following the forums!

cheers Luthie!

Welcome from another new member and player. It's a good place to learn and enjoy the company of other musically inclined folks. I think it's a great place.

Hi Luthie,

How are you getting on with Alison Sparrow ? I’ve also been doing her lessons I accidentally missed out song book one and moved onto lessons 11-20 ? I’ve been learning almost a year now! How are you finding it ? You look like you are well in the way from your pic 😀

Welcome to the forum, Luthie. I have Alison Sparrow's song books. I don't follow as a lesson schedule, just play some of those songs. 

I am mostly cello, but like viola and violin. Actually been doing more on violin, lately.

You should check out the Party Room. Maybe there is a party or two you can join in one. The first post in each party pretty much tells you the type of song to do a video of you playing for that party. I am not positive, without checking, but I think the current one is a slow song. The party rooms never close, so old parties are still active.

Welcome to the forum.

@Luthie -

I'm confused. 

Why do you mention starting with a Bubble G1?

I know so little that if Allison Sparrow isn't a good teacher I wouldn't know! I assume she picked the songs in book one because they build on each other and slowly move you forward.  Mostof them I have never hearde before so I have to learn the tune in order to know when I play it wrong.  This is slowing me down a bit.

 

Yes, Bunnell G1, not bubble g1 (darn spell checker on I phone)!

 

BTW...the name Luthie is actually the name I gave my violin.  It is a take off on luthier and it rhymes with Ruthie aka Ruth Bader Ginsburg, one of my personal heroes.  

I have been meaning to learn the violin for decades.  I am nearly retired so now have the bandwidth to do so.  Enjoying to the hilt.

 

That's all for now!

@Luthie -

Have you tried any of the wonderful Fiddlerman Tutorials? 

I always think it's great to try tutorials from many different sources - even if you're only working on one tune in particular, it's more points of view.
