EDIT:  OK I think I'm good for now, thanks guys!!

I posted this on tumblr, so I'll just paste it here:

Does anyone following me play violin and want to help me out?

I've started a "band" with a few friends of mine and between the three of us we can more or less get the arrangements we want- however a huge part we're missing is violin.

I really want it in our songs, but we don't know any violinists and I'm not good enough to lay down some nice sounding tracks.  We're working on getting three tracks recorded now, so we can bring something to our shows once we have them.  Even if you just did one song, it'd help a lot.

So I was thinking, "You know, why don't I just ask the internet to help me out?"  In this magical modern world, distance isn't such a problem, as long as you have a microphone and e-mail.  The mic doesn't even need to be amazing- I figure lo-fi violin played on a real violin is better than synthesized hi-fi violin.

So I'm looking for someone who'd like to work with us and record some tracks.  I'll write some parts and such so you wont have to take that burden- I mean, I wont bore everyone else with the details now. But it's not a hard thing to make music over the internet.

If you're interested drop me a note or a comment, or send me an e-mail: ashwara(at)10km(dot)org

I'll draw you a picture for your efforts or something!

Too bad I had to sell mine, this sounds like it'd be fun.

Unfortunately I'm just another mostly rubbish guitar player. I've got family that play violin and a few friends who do, but I don't know how easy it would be getting a hold of anyone. We've also got pretty decent instrument mics and DIs for anyone with electronic tomfoolery going on. Dunno how much that helps man :S

I wish, man. I wish. Violin is a wonderful instrument. The only ones I can play are bass and guitar, and I'm trying to teach myself piano as we speak.
To be honest, I slightly prefer the Viola for its darker and lower tone. (:

I play the violin, but i don't have my own, and i'd have to wait till August 27th or so when school is in and i'd have theirs..
but i also don't have a mic... soooo XD

if for some reason i get a mic i'd be happy to help, i've not played in a while, but i have played for at least four or so years..

if i can help i'd be happy to, but for now idk if i can without a mic...
i have a friend with a mic, but idk if it works or if i can use it, lol, it'd be kinda weird to go in her house in her small room and record myself playing XD

anyway, hopefully someone with a mic AND who can play violin will show up..

if not, note me back, maybe i could work something out, like borrow the mic or something..
