|Violins are awesome but I prefer cellos. Nice list btw.|
|i also would like to play violin. i also blame kayo dot. i also am enjoying 1, 2 and 3.|
|Have patience-it will sound like a dying cat for a while but keep at it and you'll be sounding good in no time. I played for 4 years but guitar and piano took priority eventually. 8 is gooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooood|
|Me too, soon, hopefully!|
But to be honest i really don't know where to start - as in even finding the right violin to buy.. You looking for one or have you already got it?
Yay for 1, 6 and 7
|I'm still looking. I'm gonna buy a super-cheap one first to make sure I can actually play the thing.|
|Fuckin give it to me.|
|Just have him sign your face.|
|Play like Jon Dore|
|Prometherion: Hell man, that's what I was going to say, haha. I love playing my cello :)|
Avirov: At least buy a $300 dollar one and some decent strings. Anything less and it won't even be worth it. Spend anything more than $1200 bucks as a beginner and you're an idiot. Get good, intermediate level? You're going to be spending anywhere from $1800 to >$10,000.
Let's hope you don't get good, for your wallet's sake. And be glad you don't play cello (again, for your wallet's sake).
NOW, if monetary issues don't differ you, good for you, I'm the same way...just wanted to try and scare you first. I say go for it; get a beginners book and find someone willing to teach you (you aren't going to get very far if you try to teach yourself, it isn't guitar).
|Find some Ed-Alleyne Johnson. He's an amazing electric violin player|
|these albums r good|
learn 2 play ur instrument well, don't 1/2 ass it.
Fuck the structure, get good strings and a good bow right from the get-go or you're done.
|$1800? Fuck that.|
|For anyone interested: I am currently renting a $325 violin, working my way up from dying cat to angry cat. Lessons should be starting pretty soon. And even though I can't play it, being able to actually try is an amazing, uplifting feeling. Thanks for the advice and support, sputnik.|
|i know that the Violins are made of wood. Not sure what type usually though|
