I don't have a story to share or any advice, but I just wanted to thank @Daniel_Shaped_Object for introducing me to "Hector the Hero" - perhaps this could be a project at some stage?

This forum seems to be filled with warm, kindhearted, inspirational people. I haven't been here long, but this has been my impression since I stumbled across the site a few months ago, and it has been my reason for continuing on many days when I didn't feel like trying because other stresses were interfering or because I felt like I wasn't getting anywhere.

Music has such a powerful affect on our mood (and, as I am beginning to see now, our mood has such a powerful affect on our music when we make it).

Sending warm wishes to everyone here :)

@Rob C What kind of music do you play?  The bluegrass jam I attend is at a music store.  We play Gospel, Old Time, Bluegrass and on occasion Blues. Maybe you could start one at that local violin shop.  It brings in customers!!

Or here you go http://arizonabluegrass.com/ja.....-schedule/

Hi Schaick, I just started playing the end of December. If I played for any business  right now they would lose customers! :)  

I'm about 75% finished and competent in the suzuki 1 book and the essential ellements 1 book. The only fiddle style i've tried was cabbage patch down. I hope one day I can get in on some of that, in the mean time I will check out some of these shows you linked. 

 

Thak you!

@RedViolin 

I agree the forum is filled with compassionate and kind musicians.   If it were not for the site and the projects here I don't know where I would be with violin.   

Part of me thinks that I was called to play and I felt it from my bones that I must play... so I'd like to think that I'd still be playing.

Anyway.. keep playing and posting dear violin forum friends.
