Guitar and violin

I'm an older adult who is learning to play the violin. Since my husband retired I cannot afford lessons so I'm trying to teach myself. I have had a couple of years of lessons. My husband plays the guitar very well and I would like to learn to play a few songs with him but I'm having trouble finding sheet music that includes both guitar and violin.

Deborah replied to Jim's discussion Thoughts on Going "Tape-less" in the group Adult Beginners
"Hi Jim, I know it's been awhile since I posted but I'm still here and reading and practicing. We have such a hectic family life as most people do I suspect. I wanted to address the hearing issue. I have single sided deafness; even a…"

Deborah commented on Rory Williams's group Adult Beginners
"Thanks to everyone who gave advice on the use of the tapes. I, like Jim, have decided to take them off as well. I think I will feel like I am free falling for a while but I can see how not having them on will make me more diligent in practicing so I…"

Deborah left a comment for Juan F. Tavira
"Thanks for the encouragement Juan. I think sometimes, especially as an adult beginner I just want to get there fast and it's easy to become discouraged when I don't. I'm notorious for setting unrealistic goals, at the same time I can…"

Deborah commented on Rory Williams's group Adult Beginners
"Thanks Dave, you are right. I find that when I am playing a piece of music where I have to read the notes I can't look at the neck and I'm pretty close. I do try playing with my eyes closed but it's so tempting to open them to see if…"

Deborah commented on Rory Williams's group Adult Beginners
"Hi Jim, I was wondering the same thing. I took lesson for about 9 months 5 years ago between college classes. My teacher then said when the tapes wore off she would not put them back on. My father became ill and I spent the next year caring for him.…"

Deborah, I just recently worked out my fourth finger on the viola (big stretch), What helped me was making sure I always started out with my thumb inline with my first finger and dont grip to tight! Good luck.
