  2. Actually, the violin and DB are the same size, it's just that the violinists' heads...

    I'm sure you'll get good answers here, but for violin-specific questions and followups you may want to try the forums (fora?) at www.maestronet.com
    good luck and have fun!

    almost forgot--Get a teacher!!!
     
  3. No, rosin the back of the neck to keep your left hand from slipping, and rosining the individual strings will make the rosin you put on the bow grab better. I also rosin under my arms to keep the sweat from dripping and rolling down my arm. But the best part of rosin is the smell. Honestly, I can't take my rosin out without holding close to my nose and taking a long, deep, whiff.

    A matter of personal preference and parental habits. My Pops always smells like Old Spice.
