Kevin Robinson replied to Sherrie Hoyer's discussion Question about converting an electric violin to viola..... in the group Electric Violinists~
"Two Reasons I'd Be careful, and perhaps, allow a TRUSTED violin shop to handle this, at least, initially. • Violins are made to hold together at a certain tension. Viola strings would change that dynamic. Depending on the model of violin…"

Kevin Robinson replied to Patrick McGreal's discussion Carbon fiber in the group Violinists
"CFV = Carbon Fiber Violin ► Con: Not as open & woody sounding as a wood violin. Seems like the sound is inside the instrument saying, "Let me ALL the way out" You do get a decent violin, its not philharmonic playing, recording worthy.…"

Kevin Robinson replied to Caitlin MacGregor's discussion Electric Instruments or Amplified Instruments in the group Electric Violinists~
"Caitlin, it depends on the *sound* that you are after. I've noticed most electric violins (semi-solid or solid) have a character that sounds like a violin, but it does not sound like an *acoustic* violin. My electric sounds great thru an…"

Ashley Wright replied to Kevin Robinson's discussion Pachelbel's Canon, suggestions on playing, please... in the group Violinists
"A way to practice how to distribute your bow is to practice with stopped slurs. It'll cut your practice time way down!!!  It'll quickly teach your muscles just how much bow each note should get.   I agree with Laurel about the…"

"Hey Kevin, For measure 10-11 why don't you just stay in 1st position and play an open D on route to the C# followed by a 4th finger A on the D string? I don't feel there's any problem with playing the open string. Using it will help…"

Pachelbel's Canon, suggestions on playing, please...

Attached is image 1 (of 2) of Pachelbel's Canon N D, bars 10, 11. Since I'm a nonTrained violinist, I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on best way to play, or at least, hints on better ways to play? Could also be a good discussion point among several, because I know we have our different ways of playing. For perspective,• these are small screenshots from one of the "free & legal sheet music sites."• I'm playing this in a wedding in June, the only traditional wedding song of the…See More
