I'm way behind in tackling EV, my Spark amp & all the software - but I'm drawn closer when I listen to new possibilities with the music I grew up with. 

Rock Ballads filled my heart when I was young, and they still do. 

Greg Ewer plays Adam DeGraff's arrangement from Guns & Roses - a WHOLE NEW LEVEL!  DeGraff's score is avail for purchase.

Sweet Child O' Mine - arranged by Adam DeGraff

Here's another GREAT reason to have a 5-string! 

Nordic Fire's take on an Aerosmith favorite. 

Aerosmith - "Dream On" violin cover by Nordik Fire

Caio Ferraz performs a Metallica cover - compiled of 75 tracks he played! 

NOTHING ELSE MATTERS - Metallica - Violin Cover by Caio Ferraz

This is an AMAZING ARRANGEMENT!  Led Zeppelin - Solo performance!

Stairway to Heaven : violin solo / Takashi



Guess I better hurry up and jump over my hurdles of vibrato and Reel speed bumps - so I can tackle some EV. (lol)

@Ilona -

You might enjoy this one!

Double Bass, Cello & Violin - the "Simply Three"! 

Okay, I don't even know if there are words, but it sounds like it ought to be a Rock Ballad! (lol) 

Simply Three - Rain (Original Song)

Tom Culver on CELLO, with Chicagoans - Anderlik, Otto & Church. 

Another Brick in the Wall - Pink Floyd

Pink Floyd... technically part of a Rock Opera, so if anyone else can find cool music close to a Rock Ballad (played on bowed strings) - please post it!


Don't think those 'Simply Three' have CF instruments! 😳
