Welcome to the Fiddlerman Forum! 

What kind of music do you like? 
Are you a student, or adult learner? 
Have a teacher, or are you learning on your own? 

Very exciting to start this new adventure!

Thanks for the welcome!
I like all kinds of music. I really like the Baroque and Romantic eras, but I also want to learn fiddle songs too.

I'm an adult learner, a student of an online violin website. I am truly just beginning. I had a live teacher but just after two sessions, he retired. Now he's just fiddling around at home.

I love Fiddlershop.com and just ordered a nice violin from them, a WJZ925! Woohoo and their Holstein 3 star bow. I have three pretty cheap bows but ya gotta start somewhere :-)

 I did a lot of video watching of Michael and Piere to help me choose what violin I wanted.

I have two violins, a beginners German one I got at a flea market that needs some TLC and a Franke Henner that probably should visit a luthier for a G string issue.

I see you play a 5 string violin. Nice!

Welcome @TNungesser ! Pity about your teacher, maybe you can find another one, anyway in the meantime you'll get plenty of encouragement and feedback here if needed.

Sounds like you are off to a GREAT start! 

I'm sure you'll love your new Violin & bow! 

I love a little bit of every kind of music, but I set aside my 5-string violin until just recently - been playing a 5-string Viola since last February.  

Have fun!
