When i press my finger down on the D string, on any note, it sounds muffled and scratchy, and it's unpleasant to hear. I have no idea what make my violin strings are, because I am kinda a young beginner. However, for my piece, it alternates between the high and lower notes so playing my D string just feels too uncomfortable and it sounds dreadful! Any ideas? (Not sure if here is the right place to post this btw :/)
Hello and Welcome.
How old are the strings? My guess is that the D has gone flat.
I had this happen with a set of 3 month old Tonica strings, I replace then with Zyex strings and problem went away. You might try getting a set of Fiddlerman Strings to replace yours and the are great strings and low cost,
hope this helps you.. have a great day.
With violins there is no fretting over the music.
