  2. hoi, Yesterday I agreed with my violin and my voice screws when my g-string declined voice coil. So whenever I try to vote him he goes back, he's way too laag.Hoe can I run it again without his declining?

    1. Hoi Mary, try the voice coil while simultaneously turning a lot to “within” to push. He remains as well is down. But let me know if it worked. Success !

  3. I want - to have more violin played after a time - start again, but my tuning fork is missing. And now I find this page! totally super! A very good help, really!

  4. super this! Was here for a while looking for. Had a time no longer played viola and he was moved and completely out of tune. I have a pretty perfect pitch so the A and D so I found again, but I just need a reminder of the G and C. That has certainly helped me and now he is fine tuned again!

  5. The exercise did not cause my violin was displeased.
    Now my piece again sounds really good. thanks!!

  6. I'm super happy with the sound clips to vote. I've been playing for almost a year and had to practice a bit for orchestra, while my violin was displeased. Super thanks!!!

  7. Very convenient that agree with sound clip. That surely is better than with an electric piano. Usually mn violin teacher tunes the violin, but now in the holidays I wanted to try it for yourself. Am now a few months engaged in lessons and likes it very much!! Your site is very clear and quite now! thanks!

  8. It's raining today (23 Mar. 2011) and I sit alone in the country somewhere in South-Australia.
    Yes you read it right, it rains. I do not have to work outside, time to try the new violin once.
    I'm not a teacher but a voice device. Yet, you can early because nothing. Well for my guitar and violin saxafoon but one that's quite another. Had then that I knew already the 4th (G) piece of string. The book Essential Elements 2000 for Strings was not clear enough for me. Then once again google it as it is now called the demand "the stemmem a violin" and yes bullseye. Wijntjens Violin and Piano. taken by the read work and then the sound clips. The sound clips followed my tuners (2pieces) and that brought clarity to how it should sound. Then the violin there and gently proberen.Ik did not want to mess up again to a string, which means that I 150 km to drive before I joined the first music to be able to continue with the violin. (But have an extra set in the future in his pocket.) The Mp3 sounds were wonderful match. For the first time I had a violin himself voted. Am happy with it. Men's / Women Thank you and good luck there in Holland. greetings Albert.

    PS. on the 442 Hertz tune I try later. First I get a tune look like. For now, I am a cat skinning. ( not completely true ) With the sax you have to adjust by ear and I also do with the violin. But it amazes me how big guys here with big hands work the heledag labor have made the evening can go after work at once on his small "Fingerboard". I have a lot to learn.
