Keep on going! Do you play keyboard by ear? If not, here is a little story that might encourage you. My sister has played violin in an orchestra for years, including during her college years. She could never fiddle becuase she could not play by ear, she could only play by reading music. Sis loves funk and wanted to learn to play the bass. She got a bass and a few lessons and she told her instructor that she wanted to learn to play by ear. She is now jamming by ear with her bass. I hope she learns to do the same with that violin (scratch that) fiddle.
