Thinking of Learning an Instrument
Ok so, I watched this recently and decided I wanted to learn an instrument . .. … .
I make dubstep and feel I’d love to play the violin, now I tried to learn guitar many years ago, lets say 6 – 8 years ago, I’m now 25 and think well I want to add something to my skills, I like the sound of the violin in these and more dubstep pieces and as I make the stuff would think it would be logical for me to learn it. I am a bit wary however as most people say the violin a hard instrument to learn. I got recommended that I learn Cello, I am not sure whether this would be something I’d like to learn so I’m going to listen to some pieces and see what I think. I was also asked why I don’t learn saxaphone or a brass instrument, trumpet or trombone, possibly even oboe, not sure why but I ruled out saxaphone because a friend plays it and I’m not sure I have the puff.
I’d love to know what people think, I’m ruling out keyboard/piano as I have my little midi controller keyboard and i can dabble when I feel like it. My budget is very limited at around £150, I’d prefer to spend a little less but I’ve seen two different models of violin that I could go for. The Stagg Electric Violin and the Cecelio Electric, I would always go for an electric instrument and this is another reason why brass instruments seem a little far off for me, anyway I’d be open to some comments about what to do, I’m a little unsure about the violin being hard because a lot of people say go for an instrument because you want to learn it and not because it is easiest.
