I've had my (first) violin for two days now, and have had one lesson so far. Beyond the fact that I can't figure out how to properly put on the shoulder rest (after a short while, it falls off) I find it to be much more comfortable without it. Should I just get used to the feeling of the shoulder rest or is it optional?
