I got this huge (but just right for me) 80 year old, awesome violin yesterday, because my old violin was too small. Today, I practiced and it sounded great! I could play it properly and it sounded amazing! But,when I place on my shoulder, it hurts and makes marks on my shoulders after playing for 5 minutes. It's perfect and all, but it's really uncomfortable on the shoulder. You must be thinking, "Why not get a shoulder rest?" Hello? I went to the instrument store yesterday! I asked for one, but my mom said I couldn't have it. After all, she did spend $85( if you buy it,it's $700) on my rented violin. Have any ideas?
