Hi guys, After more than 20 years of neglecting my primary instrument on which I acquired my classical music education, I finally decided to return to the violin. Since my old acoustic violin was completely deformed, I decided to buy an electric violin so that the neighbors wouldn?t complain: ?Who?s beating the cat?? There was a good opportunity on eBay and got the violin from Germany. Hand made beast with active pickup and 4-band eqalizer...not an ole porch fiddle, but nowadays, with digital modeling, it can sound almost acoustic. And now, back to basics (was my bow grip Franco-Belgian or Russian? I forgot). Empty strings first...scales in first position...and so on. Maybe I'll be able to play some decent improvisation after five, six months. Damned...and I used to play Grappelli hot jazz pieces...once.
