    Dude...You cant play chords in Violin. Violin unlike Guitar is a monophonic instrument and not a polyphonic instrument...Means you can only play one note at a time..

    Not entirely true....but valid enough in context of his question.

    Quoting from Wikipedia:

    Double stops and drones
    Double stopping is when two separate strings are stopped by the fingers, and bowed simultaneously, producing a chord. Sometimes moving to a higher position is necessary for the left hand to be able to reach both notes at once. Sounding an open string alongside a fingered note is another way to get a partial chord. While sometimes also called a double stop, it is more properly called a drone, as the drone note may be sustained for a passage of different notes played on the adjacent string. Three or four notes can also be played at one time (triple and quadruple stops, respectively), and, according to the style of music, the notes might all be played simultaneously or might be played as two successive double stops, favoring the higher notes. Playing the notes simultaneously is done by applying more pressure to the bow and/or bowing closer to the fingerboard

    Pick up the keyboard notes and try to play it on the violin. My daughter does the same for some carnatic varnaams on viola. And I do the same on my guitar too. There are a lot of songs with keyboard notations in this forum. Or I can put some URLS if you want.
