Hi All,

Confession time!  I'm actually a luthier (newbie) in violinist (newbie) clothing.  When I started this journey it was to make one violin to mark a couple of events that happened in my life.  That grew instantly into a passion for the art of building violins.

However, using Beth's videos and being encouraged by everyone else and actually feeling  and listening the various pieces of wood change as I practice (and boy I need practice) has also seen a new need develop.  Playing the violin.

Will I take the exams-stay tuned, but I will continue playing that is for sure.

Beth, I am building a new violin one based on Stradivari's 1715 'Titian' and I would love it if I could hear it being played by a professional.  If that is possible that would be a dream come true.

Cheers

Ray

I read somewhere recently( i probably do too much of this) that you can sand the back of the neck to get a better grip with the thumb.  Any thoughts on this? 

I wouldn't do this to my own violin because i think it would ruin it, but this was someone's advice to a "newb".  Is it bad advice?

Hello Beth and fellow Violin Labbers,

First of all, thanks to Beth for running this site - it's very well designed and the tutorials are excellent.

I thought I'd celebrate my new membership by uploading this video.
As an adult learner I battle with wanting to sound better than I do - right away! This produces a lot of physical and mental tension, which is all too apparent in this film.
Please help!

Thanks
Ian

Hi, I downloaded the A drone to my Iphone, but can't download the other drones. Is it me, or is downloading turned off? I want to download the drones to my iphone so I can play them in the room I practice in. Thanks,

Hello everyone I have a question about Instrument Care,My Question is during the winter months am I better off keeping my violin in one of my colder rooms about50F-65F with a humidifier or in my Bedroom under my Bed with a space heater about 5ft away with a humidifier in the case,as the Temperture does flucuate in the bedroom I am worried about rapid temperture changes during the evening will affect the violin.

I have been trying to relearn my left hand  --that is, stop the squeezing.  I am doing the exercises, watching the videos--but my hand is slipping all over the place, never landing on the same note twice.  My thumb has no "friction" and  slides off the violin. Any suggestions for a small hand with a very smooth thumb?
