    I do like stringed instruments the best.
    piano
    violin
    guitar
    are my 3 favorites.

    Also play
    banjo
    trumpet
    flute
    drums

    I like piano best because I can make more of a variety of sounds with it than any other instrument I play.
    And I can play it by sheet music or by ear
    But it's real hard to carry a piano around with ya!

    And my favorite composer till this day is still Beethoven.
    I don't think anyone has come near him when it comes to putting notes together in a unique way, and goes from slow and hauntingly beautiful to powerful and emotional.
    He can mix sorrow and victory together like no other.

    Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata 1st Movement:
    Hauntingly beautiful.

    Beethoven's Fur Elise:
    Can go from a tender calm and melancholy to anxious dread and everything in between.

    Beethoven's 3rd Movement of Moonlight Sonata:
    Powerful.

    I am rather fond of Chopin's Nocturne Number 2 in E Flat Major, though I cannot say I care that much for him as a person.

    My brother bought one too. The information you are getting on it is solid. My brother ALSO played violin so I can confirm most of what you are hearing. I would definitely start with that and have fun with it

    Here is a good start:

    (Here to tune your mandolin)
    My New Years Resolution: 1 Peter 3:15
    Omniscient without man's qualification. John 1:3 "Nothing"
    Colossians 1:17 "Nothing" John 15:5 "Nothing"
    Mighty, ALL mighty (omnipotent). Revelation 1:8
    No possible limitation Isaiah 40:25 Joshua 24:15
    Infinite (Omnipresent) Psalm 145:3 Hebrews 4:13

    Is Calvinism okay? Yep

    Now to Him who is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think... Amen. -Ephesians 3:20 & 21

    1Co 13:11 ... when I became an adult, I set aside childish ways. Titus 3:10 Ephesians 4:29-32; 5:11

    Separation of church and State is not atheism "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights..."

    That's the very one! Listen to that with your eyes closed out in the desert by the fire and see if you don't get lost in the music...

    I do get lost in music.
    I can play for hours and not realize how long it's been.

    Need the violin music to that one out in the desert.
    Man that would sound awesome!

    The dessert red rocks out here and canyons have a way of magnifying and echoing sound that is like nothing I've ever heard before. Not to mention you can actually see the stars out there. You have to drive a good 45 minutes to an hour out of Vegas to really see stars. Not too long ago I was out there with my kiddos and we saw a large Western Shovelnose snake. He didn't seem impressed with us. I didn't have much to say to him either.

    Hah! That is the one piece I can play pretty decently, that I mentioned could fool people. The difficulty to playing Chopin well is to try and have the left hand part solid and rhythmically strict, while trying to play "rubato" with the right hand melody part, slightly varying the speed making it sound free and expressive.

    You may enjoy this video (and the others by the same user). Interesting visualizations of classical music pieces.

    I think of how wonderful some songs like this would sound in that environment.
