The violin is a rubbed-stringed instrument that has four strings. It is the smallest and sharpest of the family of classical string instruments, which includes the viola, cello and double bass; which, except for the double bass, are all derived from the medieval violas, especially the fiddle.
The violin is one of the characteristic instruments of the Baroque, among the important Baroque composers we find Bach and Vivaldi. Nowadays, it is considered an instrument of great difficulty, because it can be played in different ways. The best thing about instrument is that you can play absolutely all kinds of music. Apart from the classical violin, we also have the electric violin which has a more trimmed structure than the traditional one.
