I took piano lessons as a child, then clarinet lessons in high school. Now 30+ years later, I’m learning the violin. I’m doing things so differently this time around, but still looking for advice from anyone in a similar situation.
Me, too! I love the portability and take it wherever possible. I love playing for People if They will let Me; kind of a Ham that way.
Apparently, I also like collecting them. I have the Damiano, and the Ming Zhu so far from here. Sometimes I could just stare at the Violin and appreciate it’s beauty and workmanship. They are part of the décor in the bedroom on wall hangers which doubles as Me being more apt to pick it up and play it more often.
Goldslinger, I’m curious why you would have both the Damiano and the Ming Zhu. Do you have a preference between them? What are the differences that you experience between them? I’ve read a lot on the website and listened to some comparisons but am intrigued as to why you would want both. Any reason other than collecting them? Before my violins were stolen I had the first one then inherited a second better one. Would have sold the first but got busy with life and didn’t get to it before they were taken.
