Sherlockian Violin Society

I mentioned this a while ago, but the Sherlockian Violin Society is now fully ready and I'm officially launching it today, right now, with you guys. You're the first people I've really told about it.

Website is up and running, badges and membership cards, letterheaded paper, PayPal account, all sorted.

Re: Sherlockian Violin Society

congrats, it sounds great!

I play the piano but decided lately to give a chance to the violin and I bought one two weeks ago. I know I now have a long way ahead of me, especially as I will learn it all by myself...

Re: Sherlockian Violin Society

Well keep at it. The violin's a really cool instrument! I've been playing for about a year now and I'm still pretty crap at it. I can play the Sherlock theme, Irene's theme, the Jeremy Brett theme, We Wish You A Merry Christmas, God Save The Queen and Auld Lang Syne. Not got round to Bach yet.

Re: Sherlockian Violin Society

My daughter wants to learn violin (she's 4 1/2), so I will start her on lessons next year.  I gave her the choice of learning whichever instrument she wants, and she's stuck with violin from the start.

I play crap piano myself (only took 2 1/2 years a while back, so I suck), but I love music and I want my kids to at least learn to appreciate music, so I don't care what instrument they want to learn to play.

Re: Sherlockian Violin Society

Oooooh! Awesome! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png
I haven't played the violin for years, due to the fact my teacher accidently broke it *grumbles* http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/sad.png
, but now I'm finally in the process of getting it fixed! A friend is offering to do it for free! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/love.png
*dances* I'll need to do some serious brushing up (to put it midly http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/stoned.png
) though...Unfortunately I can't afford the fee for the society right now, but once I find a job I'll definitely be joining up! It's a great idea http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/smile.png

Re: Sherlockian Violin Society

I tried to register in the SVS forums today, but registration was disabled? Do you get access once a member?

I'll be sending my membership application off soon...

Re: Sherlockian Violin Society

ah, I would love to join you all but...

I'm a viola player http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png


I even get my strings from Cardiff Violins, in a pinch (its generally cheaper to order them from America)

Re: Sherlockian Violin Society

I've got a violin, just for my Holmes collection, but I am unable to play it unfortunately.

Re: Sherlockian Violin Society

Aaaaaand: How do you tell when a Violist is out of tune?
A: The bow is moving.

Lastly, What is the range of a Viola?
A: About 30 feet, if you kick it hard enough.

I stop now. Because, by g*d, there are really enough violin jokes out there too ;)

Re: Sherlockian Violin Society

Where do I have to send the membership form and so on to join up? I'm missing it on the website for some reason... If you could help me out, it'd be much appreciated.

Oh, hang on... send details to the e-mail address?

Re: Sherlockian Violin Society

WOW.  Seems cool.  I wish I could play.  I have one.  I tried once.  But the fact that it didn't have frets totally threw me.  IDK.  Perhaps I should dig it out, and give it another go....but....HOW DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOUR NOTES ARE?!  Gah!  I tried to teach myself, as I am too poor for a proper teacher.  I had a book, and bought a video.  But both failed to help educate my guitar fingers in the ways violin speak.

Re: Sherlockian Violin Society

So, for some reason my forum that I set up as part of the Sherlockian Violin Society got taken down. I'm not sure whether it was because I didn't have enough members or, didn't post regularly enough to be deemed as active or whatehaveyou, but I've decided to simply redirect the Forum button to this specific topic here on this forum. That way, members of the society will get the chance to sign up here and interact with other Sherlock fans here too, as well as having their own topic to discuss violiny type stuff.
