The Troubles of a Violinist

December 20, 2018


The first note is always the hardest
And has the most potential to be overthought
One miniscule deviation from the correct pressure
Only allows the strings to produce tortured screams and hisses
And even with the mastery of the bow
It only takes a fraction of a millimeter
To be too sharp or too flat
Ridding the piece of the simple foundation of being in tune
Still, I will never stop
For the blisters that form on my fingers
And the bruises that blossom on my neck
Are nothing compared to the perfect execution of a caprice

    If your neck is bruised, you're too tense. ;) I can so relate. To make matters worse, I DO practice for an hour every day, and I STILL sound terrible.

    Thanks for sharing. It was *interesting* .

    Oof, so succinct yet so impactful. The perfectionist's symphony.
