I’m delighted that there are so many amateur violinists these days, like myself, people who began playing well after childhood, took lessons, practiced a lot, and persevered for many years. There’s much online content aimed at amateurs that provides many more avenues for learning that in the past. But I’ve run across a fair number of amateurs, again like myself, who have played the easier solo Bach but have not even attempted the Chaconne. So two questions, first is it foolhardy for an amateur without a teacher to have a go, make a start on the Chaconne, and second, are there online and written guides or resources that would provide a path for the amateur violinist who wants to give it a shot?
