Bought a violin 36 years ago. Play guitar, banjo, ukulele, mountain dulcimer and sometimes the radio. I’ve been told it’s never to late to learn to play an instrument. It’s time. I want to learn how to play the violin (fiddle).  How’s the best or easiest way to learn? Don’t want to sound cheap, but don’t want to spend a whole lot. I’m retired, my wife too. Steve.

Hi, @steve104c Welcome to the forum. I received your reply to the Welcome email. I am pleased you logged back in and introduced yourself. Feel free to email me if you have any issues or questions.

Seems you have a new violin but have never played it. Well, you have certainly come to a great place to learn and get advice and just connect with other bowed string instrumentalists.

We all are very pleased that you have joined us.

@steve104c -

WELCOME to the Fiddlerman Forum! 

Glad you found us!

If you think your fiddle & bow are in good shape, then start with what you've got - but buy new strings. 

The bow is EXTREMELY important - make sure to learn to hold it correctly (amazing how important this is).

Many GREAT Fiddlerman Tutorials to get you started!

 

Over in the right hand side bar, scroll WAY down to -
