Fiddling with Linux*
A violin is an analog instrument beloved throughout the world. I started playing at the end of 2009 and will spare sharing my skills but, I will share Linux tools, scripts and hardware I use to help learn and play.
Linux has a great many tools that a musician would find of great use. There are software tuners, metronomes, webcam tools, audio recorders, music generators, and engraving markup tools.
I will share the tools I have found while learning to play music again and describe some of the scripts and tools I have built for making a Linux netbook a practice partner.
