I have been teaching myself the violin for the past 8 months- about an hour each day. I'm 23 years old, and I'm just looking for advice for practicing.
I've read the forum topics posted for this subject, but I was looking more toward practicing specifics. Maybe something you did that helped you profoundly in your playing abilities, that you remember greatly over the years.
As of right now, I've been using youtube, and I've finished 'essential elements- book 2'- about to begin book 3. I'm happy with my performance so far. I know all the major chords and a few minors. I've been working on playing 16th notes, but found that it's tough to play at a high tempo.
