I have always wanted to play Pirates of the Carribean and other beautiful melodies on violin. For me, it is a nightmare to play anything on it.
I have a musical background (Electronic Producer). I know basic music theory and play the keyboard (beginner).
But when it comes to violin, I feel exhausted. Finger placement is my biggest issue: how to press a string without touching other, as the space between them is so small. I can't touch only one at a time except E and G, because they are first and last of course.
Bowing is not so difficult, but sometimes my bow jumps or bounces automatically.
I'm looking for some expert who can explain their journey, guide me and correct me, if I'm doing something wrong.
When I have time, I watch tutorials and stuff online. I do this sincerely and seriously, but either my fingers are too big or the space between the strings is too small.
I have 4*4, in case I didn't mention it before.
How long does it take to learn to play the violin on an intermediate level?
