Some Days I Feel Like a Violin Beginner

Don’t resist, instead embrace those days. They’re not a bad thing. Actually they are a good thing.
Now you can erase all your assumptions and once again approach your instrument with a sense of excitement, discovery and curiosity.

Isn’t this the place where your best work happens?

Hey, Thanks! Sometimes my violin playing seems so bad, and I wonder if maybe its the bow. Sometimes, I put resin on it, and sometimes I seem to have to wipe it off.
Then, I wonder if its the G string, as sometimes there are spots that just don’t make a sound! Its maybe, the string? The A string does this also. Do strings go bad when being used alot?
So, I experiment, only to find that some days everything seems fine, and sometimes not. Could just be me? It happens no matter how diligent I am at working the string in different ways.
