  1. Hey, thank you for making this video, I am very new to playing the violin
    and this has helped me a lot to understand how to read music in a easy way!
    ­čśÇ There was one thing I was wondering though, with the E string, does that
    also go up to three fingers? as it’s the only one you showed as going up to
    two :S Thanks again :D´╗┐

  2. so in all honesty there is 16 notes on violen, 4 per string right, already
    play 3 other instraments so this will be easier than i thought´╗┐

  3. im guessing that this is your first time with music, you see you most
    likely learned that every good boy does fine or face stuff in elementry,
    don’t worry take it from me, its not that hard just practice its just basic

  4. It is? Then I guess I’lll do fine…Everyone has been telling me that
    learning the violin is pretty difficult, But now I’m guessing it’s all from
    memory (mostly)..right? But I didn’t know there are 16 different notes .

  5. Ok, I’m starting over on this lesson so I can understand what I may have
    missed when I went onto lesson 14… I understand G – O123, D – O123, A –
    O123, E – O12 ascending scale… Its decending scale E – 21O then you go to
    D then A??? thats what I don’t get… Are you not decending in order of
    ascending??? Cause when I read it – it is decending in order or I am
    wrong??? Confused…´╗┐

  6. This is immeasurably helpful. I’m teaching myself how to play the
    violin…. because I love the sound of the instrument. So the violin only
    has only 2 octaves to it?´╗┐

  7. I understood the part where we’re supposed to put our fingers but how can i
    tell if its G, D, A, or E?? Please help´╗┐

  8. Ok when you have your hand placed correctly on your finger board the string
    closest to your thumb is the G string then it goes D, A, & E´╗┐

  9. I just picked up mine, after 14yrs! and I’m also checking out all these
    vids on YouTube. quite thrilling again isn’t it :)´╗┐

  10. Thank you dude! I know how to read music but in bass cleft because I played
    the tuba. This helped me a ton all i need now is a violin!´╗┐

  11. I want to thank you SO much for this video. It has helped me tremendously.
    I have picked up the fiddle again after many, many years. My dad and
    grandpa used to play and I learned a bit from them by ear. Now they are
    both gone and as an older adult I’m striving to learn the old tunes they
    knew, but to do so I have to know how to read music via an old book by Don
    Messer, the great Canadian fiddler. Your video is the only one that was
    able to get my poor old brains to understand where the notes go on the
    fingerboard ­čśë Thank you again!´╗┐

  12. Thanks–should be useful to beginners. I taught myself to play by ear and
    have loved this method since. But I agree reading music is a must for ALL
    SERIOUS LEARNERS. I am able to play at least 400 (four hundred) pieces (not
    concertos) by ear. I wish everyone good learning and playing. Music is the
    most beautiful art.´╗┐
