    Too bad it takes so much of my laziness to make one productive decision. I've been needing a new violin bow for about eight months yet I continue to play with my old, gross. I could just have it rehaired.

    @ mlogan. I started out with classical violin and in my late teens I fell in love with Irish and American folk music. My arm is so heavy on the violin now that I mostly play viola in orchestras now. My director rather hates the way I play classical violin, lol.

    I really do think that's cool. I've always wanted to learn to play violin (perhaps one day I'll get around to it), and I love bluegrass so I've had a yearning to "fiddle". Sigh, maybe one day. :p

    I can only play classical flute and keyboard, although I'm more proficient with the first.

    Crazy, I played the flute for many years as well! It's been a while, so I'm a bit rusty.

    While I would agree that it's much easier to learn as a child (sponge brains) I don't think it's ever too late. Heck, I didn't start learning piano until I was 21.


    If you know how to read sheet music that's a giant part of the battle right there.


    Fiddle is done by ear but I think reading sheet music is a great tool for learning any instrument.

    It's just a matter of available time right now. :D We got my parents' piano and I want to get lessons for my girls. I've contemplated learning along with them. I pick out simple tunes on the piano but nothing complicated. But again, the time issue.
