    hello nabzy.. I love all the music instruments..
    violin is an instrument with which u can make ppl cry, jump laugh and what not.
    even though I play guitar and keyboard.. I always admire ppl who play violin coz its the most difficult instrument to learn as far as I know. Can u please record the violin piece from Mohabbatein and post it. I love it and also anything from the cupboard of "Dr.vaidyanathan" the great.

    Hey Himika and steelstrings! I totally agree that the violin can portray all kinds of emotions..aahh..its awesome..one second u can be playing something so sad and then all of a sudden change it around and play something full of joy.. i've played both the mohabbatein theme (that's definitely one of my faves...) and the aa bhi jaa violin part...and will deffo record them and post em as soon as i have time...another one that i really like is the short violin piece at the beginning of hum dil de chuke sanam...i think ismail darbar is also a violinist...so...obviously he knows what notes a violin shines on...anywhos...tc

    well i've just started learnin the violin ...its been just over a month now...abhee toh jus tryin to get in the mood...!!
    to be frank ..i dont seriously like the instru...its good but not that good...
    and ,maybe becuz i am already a guitarist,i dont find violin to be hard at all...the fretboard's so small,u dont need much of muscle building...u dun even have to worry bout the 'pickin' as much as u have to do on the guitar...
    jus that u have to play everythin through the ear...(cuz of no frets)..which i think is more about ur musical experience rather than ur instrument expertise..!!
    but then again..the reason i am learnin the violin is vanessa mae..ha ha..shes great...love her!!especially red heat,hocus pocus etc..kewl stuff...
    but my fav piece is 'eruption' on the violin...some bobby yang fella has that video on youtube...do check that out!!!

    hey Frogclown
    heres the initial part of ya ali...lemme explain my notation...imagine ur playing a chromatic scale on any string..and the notation would be
    0, 0.5, 1, 2, 2.5, 3, 3.5, 4

    ok..so play the part on the E string

    2, 2, 2, 3, 4, 3, 4, 3, 2, 1, 0 (play this twice)

    :rock:

    i didnot quite get your notation nabzy. i play violin in classical style. i cannot corelate to the numbers that you have mentioned. can you be more elaborate please
     
  16. nabzy

    nabzy New Member

    classical indian style? hmm...ok..do u understand this version?

    G, G, G, A, B, A, B, A, G, F#, E

    (all on the highest -in pitch- string)

    @luthier..that electric violin seems totally awesome! this may be a stupid question, but does it have a distinctly electric sound...like is the difference in sound b/w a normal and electric violin the same as the distinction b/w acoustic and electric guitars? i'd absolutely loooooooove to try out an electric violin...

    @alfaone...umm the stuff i posted last is the intro to ya ali..right at the beginning of the song before he starts singing...and i tried sending the mohabbatein notation to the email addy u gave me but it bounced back..when i have time, i'll jst post it in the same notation as above...unless u want the file...

    here's the ya ali intro again so u dont have to scroll upwards.
    G, G, G, A, B, A, B, A, G, F#, E

    (all on the highest -in pitch- string)


    more on the number analogy later....when i dont have to be finishing 12 page research papers..ugh

    @nabzy.....Yes the violin sounds different and the pickup used in it was self-made and a prototype. I still have to better the pickup design but everything has to made from scratch since nothing is available ready here. I am alraedy wkg on two more electric violins but progress is slow b'coz of job commitments. Tell me if u want one.. ;-p

    Regards
    Luthier.
