    i dont think this can really happen. im a cellist and i know whenever i bow like this or faster it doesnt get hot enough to light a cigarette on. if it was im pretty sure my hand would have many burn marks. but then again, who knows?

    nice effort though, i suppose its possible with the right type of rosin strings, and pressure on the string...
    seriously, that was pretty cool even if it was fake.

    Okay, I was forced to play violin for several years when I was younger, and I used to try and get the string as hot as I could by playing as fast as I could, and it got hot enough to kind of sting your finger, but not to light a cigarette.

    Of course it`s fake. I play the violin, and I know that that was not fast at all. Even playing much more intense and faster songs, my strings barely get warm.
    I`ll give credit for the nice idea, though.

    I`ve played the violin for 30 years. There is absolutely no way this could happen. Even if it were possible to get a string that hot by bowing, it would break almost immediately, and would most likely also burn the hair on the bow. My advice to this kid is to concentrate less on cheap frauds like this and more on his tone, which is amateurish at best.

    "if you say is fake you kinda have to point out why is fake, besides ur experiences."

    His experience is that it`s fake, becuse he`s seen and played faster and his strings still didn`t get that hot. That`s "why is fake."

    "like i cant say that you are dumb because i am smart"

    A) Arguement... FAIL.

    B) Well, you couldn`t say that anyway. If this comment says anything about your English prowess, you`re not smart enough to get away with it anyway.

    Yeah, I`m calling BS on this. I`ve played the violin for many years and the strings don`t get hot like that, at all. That would burn the bow hair if it did. Plus the rosin on the bow would act as sort of a fire-suppressant I would think. And he not even playing that fast.
