    Default Violin Shaped Object!

    My coworker gifted me his ten year old, never played cheap violin.
    It actually plays ok, to my philistine's ear.
    I can, occasionally, get a sweet tone and it is BLISS.
    Thinking about getting a decent one from one of L.A.s many decent violin shops.

    Probably have to get two, cause my wife wants to play one.
    Playing my Magic Fluke and grinning like a fool!

    "Probably have to get two, cause my wife wants to play one."

    Sounds to me like grounds for divorce! Hope you've got tolerant neighbours.

    It is probably illegal for me to put bow to string in at least 42 states... (Compared to the 16 states and 8 foreign countries where I'm prohibited from playing a bagpipe chanter, or ANY wind instrument other than a slide whistle...)

    But if you like your Magic Fluke uke, check out their violins!

    Q: What sounds worse than a violin beginner?





    A: Two violin beginners.

    Have fun!
