Post Real f holes
A while back i picked up a violin (always wanted one, loved the way they sound) and my god are these boys hard to play well. All scale patterns are 4 notes per string plus if you are a fraction out with your fingering you play the wrong note.
Out of curiosity does anybody else play one of these things?

Yea! I bought one from a charity shop about 2 months ago for 30quid! Its a good one too..

Its so hard to play.. I've been treating it like a guitar, using what I know and trying to adapt it.. I didnt know that they use 4 note per string scales, I've been using 3.

I have a friend who plays and is really good, I'll see if he can give be a lesson on the basics..

I'd rather play the cello though, violin is a bit small and 'fiddly'. pardon the pun.

Have you seen "Master and Commander: Far Side of the World" ?

Russel Allen strums a violin in the movie like an acoustic guitar :lol: sounds pretty good too (although thats not actually Russel playing, whoever is strumming the violin, it sounds good).
