Another newbie is here -_-

Just starting to learn to play the violin since November 2012...

Thanks to this wonderful website! Really appreciate it! It helps me a lot...


An introduction about my violin too:

Model: Eurostring 100 (China-made?? I guess...)

Rosin: Paganini Finest-Solo Rosin in Cork Case


And... I don't know what else should i tell here... That's all...

Welcome Vince! (fellow engineer and musical student of the strings!)


Been here over a year myself and now that I'm on the second year studies, things are starting to sound like I might start to know what I'm doing.

Glad you found us here and hope to see a lot of your posts. Just one big happy family, well... big family nevertheless. LOL

- Understand the musical notes and terms.

Hi from 'Down Under' mateaussie_flag

It's good to see you here.

I'm sure that engIneering is very profitable and satisfying. But, while the violin is much less profitable, it's better for you soul mate

Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of dunno ..... What was I saying???? facepalm
