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...
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..
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...
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.
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...
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...
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 :)
01 - "Stargazer" (Rainbow, 1976) great addition of violin section at the end.02 - "Running With The Pack" (Bad Company, 1975)03 - "Ghost Love Score" (Nightwish, 2004)04 - "Sacred Hour" (Magnum, 1981)05 - "Cuz I love You" (Slade, 1972)06 - "Come Sail Away" (Styx, 1975)07 - "Last...

Pretty sure there's more but that's all I can think of off the top of my...
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.
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...
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
