I love violin use in rock, or any other type of music for that matter. Most of the songs that I consider to be my favorites tend to have violins playing in the background or in the opening. It's just so classic and sexy.
Not the state, the old rock and roll group. I bought a greatest hits CD of theirs a while back and was listening to it on the way to work, then back on the way home. I forgot how many really good songs they have, and how much they depended on the use of violins in their music...
Let's say, I have nothing much against violins,
I may even appreciate them
sometimes when I have a hangover
in some piece of let's say Mozart, yes.
But I hope that you don't mind
that I prefer the violin to be somewhat discreet
when it comes to rock.
If they know their place...
Even in the heaviest of the hardcore rock songs, violins (and pianos) seem to add a bit of elagance and beauty to the song. I love songs that have this.
Bands such as Apocalyptica have this down to an art :)
The sounds of violins always hightens my mood and my senses. As for violins in rock musik, I ******* love it. I must say it is musik that rather pleases me in every mood, must it be while I am showering, doing chores, art work, or even sexual things. Folk metal baby!!! ;P

No, it's not really a beautiful day out there. It's raining where I am. And it's night time. No, 'It's a Beautiful Day' was the name of a rock group in the mid to late 1960s. Some of you out there aroiund my age might remember them, although they weren't real well-known as...
that they have in some of their songs just drew me into becoming a big fan..

Pretty sure there's more but that's all I can think of off the top of my...
Another music group that has great violins (or fiddles, same difference) is called the Corrs. These are four musicians; one brother and three sisters. The sisters are absolutely gorgeous, and have voices like you would imagine angels to have. I have three of their CD's so far...
I was just telling someone today how I think violins go really well in rock music. We had been listening to Andrea Bocelli, and I remembered how very emotional and intense the violin sounds, perfect for rock music. If only bands used violins more.
i wanna learn how to play one so bad, especially an electric one. the vioiln version of toxicity is so amazing. i just cant get over it, ive been listening to it some many times. if u havent seen it u need to watch it, its amazing..
It's a cello. The bittersweet cello solo.
The song itself is pretty much a rampant high but that solo mellows it all out. You lose control in the high, at first it's all noise, uncontrollable mess and insanity. Just an endless, soul-ripping scream. The cello brings the expression...
