Welcome to the forum. I am sure that you have noticed that these guys are very welcoming and helpful. I played WAY back in elementary-freshman year of high school and stopped. I am trying to relearn so much without lessons, as I live in the sticks and there aren't many here. My belief is that many of the great old time fiddlers were self-taught as well. Where there is passion, there is a way. Keep at it and lets hear ya!

Welcome to the forum.
I will say that I've heard some pretty talented fiddlers/violinists that are self taught and my guess is that the biggest hurdle would be to maintain discipline.
If a person cannot afford a teacher, its more of a hurdle providing you have the right attitude. With that attitude you can go far.

Yeah discipline is definitely a big thing and struggle at times. Sometimes I am hyper focused on my practices and practice every single day sometimes I’ll have a week or so where I don’t touch it either instrument and then when I get back into it I’m a bit rusty. I’m trying to find that balance of practicing often enough but not so often that I’m burned out of the instruments.

I agree! Not everybody had a teacher, someone had to start somewhere and figure it out along the way.
