I discovered this site a little over one year ago and bought myself a Fiddlerman Concert Violin. While I played it a bit, other things got in the way and I didn't take out the instrument as often as I would have liked.

I have some more time now, so I started to take lessons recently (focusing on Irish fiddle) and I now try to play the violin almost every day. I'm having so much fun with it, and I hope to be more active here too!

And BTW my teacher really likes the Concert Violin 😉

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Happy to have you here and happy to hear that you have been around for over a year and especially happy that your teacher approves of the Fiddlerman Concert Violin. 🙂
