I still have difficulty tuning the open strings, and I find it more convenient to tune by harmonics - i.e. play the D harmonic on the G string and compare it with the first harmonic on the D string, and so on up to the E string. I realise this will only work at home and not in an orchestra, where I probably wouldn't be able to hear myself. Is this a stupid habit, or does it have support among better violinists? @AndrewH or @Fiddlerman . Apologies to other experienced violinists I have left out, but I don't know who you are, lol!
I always wanted to be a juvenile delinquent but my parents wouldn't let me.
