    I've just bought a violin, purely based off the fact I really enjoy the sound it produces. I'm so far from being musical and I'm now 21 so it'll be hard to turn musical. As a starting instrument, how easy is violin compared to other instruments to pick up?

    It's generally perceived to be difficult in comparison to other instruments. It's hard to compare objectively though, different people click with different instruments. Have you got a teacher?

    Lol it's like choosing to throw yourself in the deep end - do you have any musical experience?

    It's certainly not impossible - it's what a lot of people tend to start on. Just get yourself a good teacher - bad violinists make my ears bleed :L
