comment Is it OK to pick over the neck pickup?
@supercat That's very interesting. Your D isn't too loose? For my own studies, I've been trying for super-speed, so I went for big high-tension strings so they snap back into place faster. A loose D might interfere with that, even though it might make smoother melodies as un unwound. But, I'm also using tapewound, so even the wound ones are pretty "unwound"ish.

comment Modulating from E Minor to C Minor
@mramosch I think if it doesn't say 2 it's 4. In classical music the suspension always held a note from a previous chord that becomes fa->mi in the new chord.

comment What to look for in beginner etudes for a second instrument?
Yes, it's marvelous for that open-F tuning. The three anchoring C's symmetrically straddle the staff, and the ledger lines correspond directly to a scale lengthwise along the top string

comment What should I look for in a violin as a beginner?
I see. Then you'll have to learn to place the bridge, too; and to put on the strings. But there are lots of videos and pictures that you can search for to help. Anything that you need that you can't find by searching online, come back and ask about it here!

comment Does improvisation in the classical idiom differ significantly from jazz and folk improvisation?
Hi Jeffey. I've added paragraph breaks to your answer because I think it makes it easier to read. Feel free to revert or change it if you don't like the places I've chosen. I hesitated in breaking the "it is..." chain, but editorially, I like the emphasis it brings out.
