I love my violin. It's a handmade full size violin which when played lovingly responds tenfold. Lately, it's been misbehaving and I suspect ( and the teacher agrees) that its due to the nasty metallic "E" string. So songs which feature the E is painful to listen to and I sound bad. So things to do this weekend would be 1. change violin strings 2. Buy a new metronome ( the present one has died from a great fall a few months back) To add on the wishlist together with Jeffrey Archer's latest novel, the IPAD....would be the complete songbook of "boys over flower".
