It CAN be, if played in a rock way. My problem with people like J.L. Ponty and Jerry Goodman and Allen Sloan is that they come to rock from a classical or country background, and don't really inhabit the violin as a rock instrument.there is another aspect to this question that I'd like to hear some opinions on....is violin really suited for rock?
I think the better question is, "is Rock and Roll viable any longer?"I'm looking for opinions on whether the violin is a viable instrument for rock and roll.
To post a video from YouTube, Regor, just press the 'share' button underneath the YouTube video. Lots of options will appear, one being a grey circle with 'copy link' in it. Press this and the link is copied. Then return to this thread and in your normal post either hold your finger down (if on a cellphone) or right-click (if on a computer) until the 'paste' appears. Click this and it will post your YouTube link. Finish the pst and the full YouTube link will appear in the thread. Trust me, its not that hard.There are lots of videos on YouTube and, if I knew how I would post links (but I’m too scared to try - I’m new here, you see!)
Looks like I've been lurking for a long time!
Probably the easiest way is to just copy whatever is in the address bar at the top of the YouTube page and then paste it right into the post -Underneath the YouTube video there's a button that says 'share". Click on it and one of the options is' copy link' (it's in a grey circle). Click on that and it copies the link to the video. Then in your next post right click (or keep your finger down) and you'll see 'paste'. Press it and the link is posted in the thread. As soon as you've finished your post the video will appear in the thread. Hope that helps, Regor.
In the 1970s I nicked about 50 in total of those tomato ketchup dispensers, almost entirely from Wimpy. Haven't got a single one left, they ran out in the 1990s at chez-moi. I met Kevin Rowland in the late 1980s, quite a nice chap.Going back to my 80's days and one of my favourite groups, DMR.
