Hi everyone! My name is Lizzie and I joined last week. I don’t have much guitar experience so I figured if anyone could teach me, it’s Papa Gates!
I am a classically trained violinist and I still love to play my violin, but I wanted to learn something new and enjoy creating music from a different angle. I’ve never been able to do the rock n roll thing as an orchestral violinist but I’ve always wanted to, so I’m here to learn! 🤘

    YESSS SOMEONE ELSE WHO PLAYS A CLASSICAL INSTRUMENT!!!

    i play the cello myself and honestly, I think you’re going to love guitar. Plus at least, you already have some dexterity developed with your left hand!

    welcome Lizzie! I am really thrilled that you joined us, you’ll find this community very welcoming and if you ever have any question, don’t hesitate to reach out as there will always be someone who’ll answer 😊

    I’ll be seeing around :syngates:

    Hello Lizzie!

    I do know a violinist in Robin Nolan's gypsy jazz club who plays stuff Robin Nolan teaches on guitar and it's pretty cool!

    I'm sure you can both find the guitar help you need and some inspiration for your violin too(maybe even play some of Syn's etudes on a violin 😳)

    Thanks so much! Everyone has seemed really cool so far. I have been lurking around for about a week and decided I would be brave and venture out of the lessons into the forum, and look, everyone is cool!

    Welcome Lizzie! Yes, I can teach you - but even better - we have a community to help you when you get stuck!
    Get involved. Ask questions. (And don't be afraid to ask "beginner" questions). Everyone is here to help.
    We are all on the same path. Some of us are just further along that path.
    Have fun!!!

    Welcome! With your background, you should pick things up quickly, and hopefully you'll also be able to manage how less RIGID things are in the rock world. Enjoy!
    Thank you! That’s something I’ve noticed right off - the flexibility. It’s kind of fun (and a little scary!) to have the freedom of “if it sounds good to you, go with it!”

    The cello is SO MAGICAL! Such beautiful rich sound.
    And yes, my left hand is working great but also protesting - I am trying to convince my tiny, tiny violinist fingers to STRETCH and reach for the chords 😂 All in time. It’s so fun to start learning again.

    Hi!
    I just looked up one of Syn’s etudes and you’re right, that would be killer on the violin. So I’ll learn guitar from everyone AND get more violin inspiration too!
    I have 40 more minutes of work but I’m so ready to go practice 😂

    Welcome Lizzie! I'm so excited to have a classically trained violinist in here! I hope we can see both your guitar videos as well as your violin videos because although I don't play violin, it's one of my favorite instruments!
    Hey there!!
    I’m going to make an honest effort to record myself learning guitar so I can benefit from the community help, and I would love to share some violin with you too 🤗 thanks for being so darn nice!
