Hello fellow Fiddleheads,

After 20+ years away from the violin, I've actually started to practice again. Treating myself like a beginner by playing etudes and scales, while focusing on intonation (which was never my strong suit). Anyway, I'm a typical Capricorn taking a very technical approach.

It's fantastic to see so many passionate fiddlers/violinists in here, and hope all of your enthusiasm will keep me going as well. 

Thanks for sharing your stories; best wishes to you all!
Paul

Yup, welcome again @pj1968 - plenty inspiration to be found here - from all aspects of playing all the way through to maintenance ( and sometimes major surgery! ) on the instrument itself !  It's a blast !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Congratulations on your restart 🙂

You sound like you have the perfect game plan to get on track.

You are right about the passion found in this group of fiddlers. Also, a great family like group here with a lot of positive feedback and plenty of motivation keep you inspired.

Glad to have you here Paul!
