I've found the clever barrier between the dedicated and passionate, and those players who play because it's the only thing they know how to do.
It's all in the naming of their instrument.
"So what's your violin's name?"
I have two responses to the above stated question:
- "What are you talking about? You mean YOU actually named your instrument?"
(I've found these people are the violin players that are just along for the ride...)
-"Yeah, my baby's name is _________. What's your violin's name?"
(These people are the people who consider their violin slightly less precious than their children)
Do y'all think this is true.
I've found that it's really very frequently true.
I'm about to get a new violin, a new italian violin, and it's been taking me the last two months to try and decide on the name.
Am I obsessed- or just another passionate, and personal violinist?
(Btw- Any suggestions for Italian Violin Names?)
What's your violin's name?
