I’m a beginner and I have had my stickers on my violin since I started. Now I’m thinking I should remove them to help train my ears! I’m kind of excited as well as daunted at the thought! If it’s a distaste I could always buy some more it’s not the end of the world.
Bearing in mind I’m probably worse than a beginner, I’d love to know wha you think ? 😬
You indicated in your intro that you’re playing 4 months now with no prior musical background. Take your time.
Since you started with them, it may be easier to remove them one at a time, and see if you're comfortable with that. Maybe remove the one you think you can feel/hear best (e.g., first finger).
You do want to make sure you are learning the tone properly. It’s a good idea to tune your strings with a tuner every time before you practice.
Characterize people by their actions and you will never be fooled by their words.
