I'm preparing to start learning to play the violin myself. With so many things working against you, knowing the info you presented here will make it a fraction easier. Also, while I don't have a strong background in physics, I just wanted to say that I found this very interesting. Is the V-shape of the wave pattern (or motion of the string or w.e.) a result of the bow pulling on the string? And what is the 'slipping'?
