And I have a question, how do I tune the damn thing??? I know from lowest to highest it's tuned G D A E, but how do I tune it?
google+online violin tuner=BAM!!!
a chromatic tuner works for everything.
...the tuning pegs? The only thing is that of course sometimes the adjustments made by them are too wide, so just tune slightly sharp and loosen the fine tuner near the bridge.
a clamp on tuner is really your best bet and just pluck the strings pizzicato.
