Violin will be my 6th instrument. Long ago I was once a decent classical trumpet player, and liked Rafael Mendez stuff, which was frequently violin stuff arranged for trumpet. And sat in local community orchestras for years. More recently as a church musician I moved to 'modern' instruments. I play bass guitar, drums, and mandolin in pop bands. Recently tried playing (low-level) violin virtuoso music on the mandolin (Czardas came out ok actually). But I missed the expression trumpet could do, and thought why not get an actual violin? Violin has huge expressive potential, and is as hard as an instrument can be, sounds great! So I just ordered two Yamaha violins: one electric (SV104), and one acoustic (AV7), and a nice codabow. Lots of method books are coming, and am looking around for a teacher. My first screetch should be in a few days. :-)
