The most difficult instrument to master (not play, but master), with challenging left-right hand coordination. It has a pleasent sound with four strings tuned in fifths. Violinists are generally smart people or slackers like Charlie.
Charlie is the assistant concertmaster for his school orchestra and has only being playing for five years.
Charlie is so fucking good at the violin. Did you hear him play Symphonie Espagnole flawlessly?
Lumi is a better violinist than Charlie will ever be.

4.
An instrument that can sound beautiful WHEN PLAYED RIGHT. However, most of the time it isn't.
My definition of the way a bad violin sounds: "Horse hairs rasping against the entrails of a cat!"

5.
The hightest instrument in the string section.

i am a violinist and a violist and i think it is unfair to comment on an instrument without playing it. The violin has a beautiful high range and the viola has a melodious low range. They both sound beautiful when played properly and the player must be dedicated and put much time into their playing. (people who do not play an instrument would not understand this concept!)
The violin section played a section of fast, high notes

Like a little guitar with a bow. Sounds quite nice is it's played properly, but it's played wrong you feel like smacking the person whos playing it around the head.
Gareth was playing the violin and it sounded terrible, so I bust his nose.

Euphemism for Thomas Jefferson's penis, made evident by the musical number "He Plays the Violin" from 1776.
"He plays the violin
He tucks it right under his chin
And he bows, oh he bows
For he knows, yes he knows
That it's high-high-high-diddle diddle
Twixt my heart, Tom and his fiddle
My strings are unstrung
High, high, high, high
I am undone

I hear his violin
And I get that feeling within
And I sigh, oh I sigh
He draws near, very near
And it's high-high-high-diddle diddle
Goodbye to the fiddle
My strings are unstrung
High-high-high-high
I'm always undone"

-Martha Jefferson
