I’m a new violin player bought a cheap $180 dollar violin on Amazon because not sure how long I’ll be playing for. Found this website when I was searching for free violin information and it’s incredible. If I’m still playing in 2-3 months then ima buy a fiddlerman. This is my second day playing, here’s Ode to Joy all tips welcome...

Welcome to the site, @IssacBows!

Great video. That was one if the first sings that I did. Great jib and great intonation.

If you do decide to upgrade and go to Fiddlershop, great decision. i have purchased two instruments from him, violin and viola. They are absolutely the best and the instrument arrives ready to play right out of the box.

This is a wonderful site for info, encouragement, general music discussions in the Breakroom, anything non-music (within forum rule guidelines) in the Off-Topic room, or try to get something going in the chat. If you haven’t been to the introduce yourself yet, it took me about 2 months to do that, head on over and introduce yourself. You will get a fond welcoming as members log in and a someone has posted there.

IsaacBows -  Welcome to the forum! 

Your "Ode to Joy" sounds amazingly perfect - have you studied any other instruments?

Are you here in the USA?

Hope you continue to keep up the good work & enjoy all the wonderful tips/tutorials/info here on the FM Forum!

No have not studied any other instruments and also never thought of myself as musical which is why I’m kinda surprised to be honest. Ya I’m from SI New York...

Thank you

When I first started learning violin 8 years ago, I started with Ode to Joy (in Janice Tucker Rhoda’s The ABCs of Violin for the Absolute Beginners, Book 1).  Good place to start your musical journey.  Welcome to the forum--
