I'm still new around here, and new to the violin as well.
But there's something about it that is, I dunno... soothing to the soul. Everyone deals with the stresses that life throws at them in different ways, and I am glad that I bought a violin. It can make happy and upbeat sounds, or ones that put a person on the verge of tears. Somehow I bet I am not alone on this forum when it comes to finding some time each day to make some noise each day that reflects my mood and thoughts.
I have a Cecilio CEVN and a FM Concert violin.

I find it is soothing also. I don't know if I always thought so.
I would almost fall asleep playing cello or strumming guitar... but violin hasn't had that much of effect because all that is going on.
But now I can play songs that are somewhat soothing. And of course I listen to violin music all the time to sooth me.
