Thank you for these kind words which are encouraging. I think of myself as self-taught as I never could quite afford lessons, but really, I have many teachers. I have found so much on this site and generous teachers on utube. I remember my first tentative steps when I decided after many years of playing traditional music, with short fast bows; to embrace and attempt vibrato and it was to this site I came. I can still visualise fiddlermans's fingers as he put all four on the strings and gently eased the first joints into that magic movement.
I watch everyone I can and learn from anywhere and everywhere,
Hope everyone plays with joy and passion today......
