@Trebor -

Welcome to the Fiddlerman Forum! 

So, how's it been going so far? 

Have you played any other instruments?

If you'd like to try to join in on my recent Party here, I've posted a few helpful suggestions throughout the thread for beginners.  A Party does require you record yourself (no one will criticize).

Let us know if you need help or if you are struggling with playing your violin.

Glad you're here!

Welcome from another relatively new person here. As another old guy (I'm 78) yet kinda new player (had my viola for less than a month), I've found a lot of help and encouragement here. I posted a video of my feeble attempt to play a scale on the first day that I got my viola and not one snarky or hurtful comment ensued. 

These are a great people!

Thank you to all that messaged me your welcomes, much appreciated.

Forgive me if this message doesn't reach all of you, I am still finding my way around.

I am really impressed with the resources on this site. I know it takes alot of time to keep these sights up to date and managed correctly.  

Is there a 'Tip Box' anywhere on the site where I could contribute a few pounds/dollars?

Thanks for the welcome from 'Sutton Coldfield'.

You are welcome, Trebor. Don’t forget about the links and forum information I provided in the Welcome email. Use the email address I provided in it to contact me if you have questions or difficulty.

No, no tipping. This forum is provided by the talented and generous Fiddlerman.

Welcome to the forum Trebor.

How is your progress going? Love seeing "youngsters" beginning their violin learning journey. I hope we can be helpful.

@Trebor -

How's it going? 

Care to share what you've been playing on your violin so far? 

Working on any Fiddlerman Tutorials?

Hope you're still hangin' in there with this!
