The "Click" Moment
Today, while practicing my violin, I had the "click" moment where it felt like I actually knew what I was doing. What went well went well on purpose. What did not go well was for reasons I could both identify and resolve. That moment happened for me on the guitar at least a quarter century ago, and I am pretty excited that it has arrived for violin as well.
By no means am I a virtuoso player, but it finally feels like I can put in the work and learn new music and techniques. When I started, I just wanted to play fiddle tunes. Thanks to an excellent teacher, I can do that and much more. Plus, I can actually read music again.
