Yeah. Very Happy I've actually played it both today and yesterday despite it only having 3 strings. So I must have caught some kind of bug for it. Nod 

Though the only song I know how to play on the top two strings is Ave Maria, so I mostly play that. Laughing

Open on the second deepest string, then second finger on the deepest string and so on. Or something like that. I mostly play from ear anyway. Very Happy 

I was trying to think of something funny to say about violins to end this post. But somehow I just couldn't think of anything at all. ShruggingLaughing

I see I might have to read up on some violin jokes to be a real violinist. Nod  Laughing

From G-strings? Laughing Very Happy 

Though I agree, I had the feeling this had turned into mainly an violin/viola thread now as well. You can only derail the subject for so long without it actually changing, no. Shrugging 


Those sounds like som good childhood Christmas memories, Ringo. Nod santa 

Though I hope it's more christmassy around your parts than here.

Not that I would know either way. Laughing

Well, if you feel you have to, I'd suggest nylon strings, not steel - though neither, frankly, sound comfortable. Shocked

orwell.. i don't think you know anything about violins, but you're kinda right in this. My violin is a stradivarius copy, which means it makes a lot of sound, so i am thinking of changing from steel to nylon Smile and yes, you can get that for violins Wink

Ah, good to know. Wink 

Another concert tonight.
(Actually it's more of a concert series, featuring a new soloist each time.)

This time with a jazz violinist from Trondheim called Gaute Skrove. So there were two violinists.  Very Happy 

Here's some, not very good, pictures:

It was. Very Happy  And with a good deal of dual violin improvisation. It really was rather interesting.

Noone was there to film it this time sadly, but hopefully they'll get around to putting up the video from last week soon.

Reading about your concert on the other thread, it sounds great fun. Though a bit of a mouthfull. I'm sure your perfectly capable though. Nod  I'm impressed and a little bit envious you get around to doing so much music.

Now Trondheim or Tromsø? scratch 

Well I have lived in Trondheim and it's really nice, but you've said some things that have raised my impression of Tromsø a lot.

Well, seeing as you got a new Taekwondo stripe, I think it's safest to say; Tromsø all the way. Very Happy

Very Happy 

As to the envy point.

It's been a little while since I've played any concerts, all the while I'm going to quite a few of my brothers. And it can get a little frustrating, when you play music yourself, to go to concerts and just watch other people play, but I'm getting more used to it.

So I'm genuinely happy for you that you get to do so much of it. Nod Though I'm turning slightly green. Laughing

Yeah, that might be a solution. Laughing 

I used to play a few concerts every now and then with my band, but we haven't done that many since our drummer moved back to England. We're working on some recordings now, so that might turn out quite fun and interesting. Even quite good, Very Happy but we'll see.  

I have a couple of songs we're not using. So I'll see if I can do anything with those when I'm done with this exam. The soundcloud thing I was talking about at least. Smile

Well, I would be interested to hear whatever you get around to. Nod

Flotte instrumenter, Nora. Very Happy

Love the instruments. Really beautiful. And certainly a lot prettier than my old thing. Laughing 

Balancing them on the bed is probably a lot more prudent than my method, as well.  Razz 

How are they to play?

My brother was trying to play the one I have last year. So he had a friend of his who plays violin look it, and she apparently said it was rather hard to play.
