Hello everyone!  My name is Sidney, "spatin51" on Fiddlerman, and I am just introducing myself to the group.  I play violin, or rather I work at playing the violin.  I started playing with lessons over 30 years ago, then I moved to Colorado Springs and the violin stayed in a closet until about 4 or 5 years ago when I decided to try it again.  I consider myself somewhere between beginner and intermediate, depends on the piece I am trying to play of course.  I am a semi-retired attorney, and can find the time to practice almost every day.  I hope to be able to learn some of the more technical parts of playing the violin, such as smooth bow changes (which is eluding me at this time) and developing a professional sound.  I look forward to visiting with the group and learning more about the violin each day.

WELCOME, Sidney! 

I'm sure you will get it to come together soon.  From what I've read/heard elsewhere, it's not like riding a bike - not easy to pick back up after a long hiatus, so don't be hard on yourself.

Were any of the videos or links I posted in Your Smooth Bow Changes Thread of any help?

@spatin51 Welcome to the Forum!  

When I was in the Air Force, I was stationed in Colorado Springs for 5 years.  Was assigned to Falcon AFB (now Schriever SFB) and graduated from University of Colorado while there.  Beautiful areas in Colorado, for sure. 

Sounds like you've gotten back in the saddle--lots of people take a hiatus from the violin--life just gets in the way smile Glad to have you join us--

Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.
