Someone seems to become a violinist at the second he/she starts playing the violin. But it takes way more than that to be a worthy one. They can play such a wide range of style, sounds and techniques. And violonists can go accoustic-electric or electric. They can rock too~

They can express such vivid and passionate emotions, the violin isn't a mere tool, they use it as a voice for all the tenderness and melancholy of their soul. They reach and stab all hearts with their bow (used to rub the cords, but cupid implied too). You will love the gentle nostalgia, or will hate the loneliness and sorrow; but it will touch your soul so deep that you will have no other choice than to feel it.

Otherwise the violonist would make plain sound, or horrid noise.
"World acclaimed electric violinists Linzi Stoppard and Ben Lee's new string act FUSE." Forget the dusty penguins with shit coloured instruments (no offence), Linzi is gorgeous with her custom gold electric instrument. (And without.) See her site to hear real violinists.

Wanna be:
"I'm gonna become famous with my new violin and make lots of money!"
*The poor violin screams under a lack precision and passion, the poor thing crying for the mercy a bonfire.*
Man that shit doesn't do what I want, it must be broken. The hell with it.
*Sells it for boose, to lower the awareness of some already brainless chick, to fuck her a big 5 minute of effort, while she'll do the star.*

Don't waste good despise on skilled people, do it on mediocrity. For a better world, or at least a trying one.

The cocky members of an orchestra that always have the lead in songs. They always have to play faster than the rest of the orchestra, and louder.

They are those who play the violin. The violin is essentially, the child of the - far superior - viola, which was created prior to the violin.

A violinist is basically the skin, hair, and outer body of an orchestra. A violist is basically the limbs and muscles of the body. The cellists and bassists are basically the blood and nerves.

And as we all know, all that matters, is what is on the inside. Take this from a violist.
How many violinists does it take to change a lightbulb?

Nine. One to change the lightbulb, and eight others to stand around looking good.
