Violins are strange

October 22, 2009 18:07

Gosh ...

I never realised how strange the violin is. It really IS a strange instrument to practice, it takes soo much factors in order to play well... its shaped funny and it has the strangest sound.

The people who often play the violin are very strange themselves, having to adopt even life dogmas to this demanding strange mistress/mister/master etc. Its almost like being a slave to the violin!

I just have some random urge to share it ... why is it so strange?? Does anyone else think the violin is strange?

It is just a hollow piece of wood! The person puts their soul into this strange thing and it works magic ... Music are the unspoken words of all ... Gosh, how many people out there really appreciate the magic of violin repertiore? I am craving something in the music now ... I hope I find it anyhow.
