My violin is painted, I think that may be a bit more protective than varnish...lol. The alcohol won't harm the synthetic core of the strings? I am going to get some dark rosin today after work. And some alcohol wipes. The rosin build up could explain some of my problems. A poor excuse is better than none, I always say!

This is too much rosin. When I said that you can't get a bad sound by using too much rosin I meant as long as you can keep the strings clean. The layer of rosin that you don't get off can affect the sound.

Use rubbing alcohol on a cotton cloth and wipe gently. It will come off but avoid touching the varnish on the violin. I don't however feel like 10 strokes is too much every hour. Good job playing +4 hours. cheerleader

The tip of my left index finger has been getting callused, it is kind of numb. After playing so long on Saturday, the other fingers are a bit numb as well. If you're gonna play violin….ya gotta be tough!   loldancing

I have a feeling you are real tough Dave.

Maybe you can try to press just slightly less with your left hand fingers just in case you are overdoing it. Press enough that the strings touch the fingerboard but not much more than that.
