Argh, I still feel crappy.



You can control the sound to a small extent with adjustments, but the voice is pretty much characteristic of each violin and depends on the maker, his skill, the woods and varnish, the age, etc. The quality of the bow makes a huge difference, almost more than the instrument...

Sorry you're feeling crappy.

That violin is so gorgeous!
My younger boy has one that is a quarter-sized violin. It's so tiny, but it's cause he's tiny! The only problem is that he just can't seem to get it, and cats in the neighborhood make less shrieking noises than him. I'm hoping he'll chose a wind instrument next year!

Thier, you need to go check out the vacation thread that Sizz started - she's asking about if anyone has recently vacationed in FLA - she needs you!

Sorry, it wasn't supposed to be tasty, just something to make you feel better.
<<turning on vaporizer and fan>>

Here's a Calvin & Hobbes book for you. That always makes me feel better!

Chances are, if he's receiving instruction at school, it's not from a string player and he won't get the help he needs to begin to make pretty notes. If he's motivated and is musical, don't give up yet...Get him a few lessons with a music/string major from a nearby college who enjoys small children and can set him up properly. Make sure his fiddle and bow are in reasonable repair and playable. Some music stores really give crap to the beginners if the parents don't know what to look for.
