New to the violin!
... So, I'm really confused now.
You see, as a hobby, this whole time I have been learning songs by memorizing the finger placement some violinists use for their pieces.
Buuut, it may be more rewarding to learn songs by first reading violin sheet music instead of watching others play.
So first order of business would be to learn to read violin sheet music and know where to put my fingers for each note (because I simply don't know - music has never been my thing).
Searching the web didn't return good results. So I checked my college's library and tried to locate the most basic material possible. I found the popular Suzuki method book.
... it doesn't provide the information I was looking for. It is literally a compilation of violin sheet music.
The only thing that could teach me about reading violin sheet music (and finger placement), as far as I'm concerned, might be a teacher. But I fear I lack the time for one right now.
So essentially, how do I learn to read violin sheet music? Precisely, where to put my fingers for each note.
A particularly interesting search result was a "Fretless Finger Guides" product, which almost seems to address my problem given that you it makes it slightly easier to understand where to put your fingers for each note.
