Violin

Take violin lessons, give the warmth of classical violin! However, violin music is not limited to the pure harmony and melody of classical music composers such as Vivaldi, Mozart, Beethoven, etc. Violin is versatile, appearing in jazz as well as pop music with Vanessa-Mae being a very popular modern violinist. The alternative rock song “Bittersweet Symphony” by The Verve caused controversy due to the use of violin samples. Now it is not uncommon to see actual violinists performing in modern musical genres. Another example is Miri Ben-Ari, she is classically trained in violin, yet now she is the violinist of hip-hop, view a clip of Miri Ben-Ari. When violins are used in musical genres such as folk music, country, bluegrass, or blues, then the violin is usually called a fiddle. Apparently in hip-hop, violin is the cool term. Electrified violin is also very exciting. Here is an impressive video clip of a guy in the UK playing an electric violin in a rock band: Mark “The Mad Fiddler” Knight performing with SID80s Mark also runs a great forum for traditional or electric instruments of the violin family: FiddleForum.com
