    My Dad was musical. Selftaught. None of his children are. He was a fiddler, not a violinist. When he died, his fiddle collection was such that every descendant and spouse was given one as a keepsake, and there were still many to sell. He had over 90 fiddles, played every one of them frequently, and had left a written commentary on the provenance and musicality of each one. Amazing!

    Junior is an outstanding violinist. I never really appreciated the instrument until having all that wonderful music filling our house. Now I listen to it all the time and fell in love with chamber music. That is my usual go to music when I work out.
