I was trying to figure out how to make a section for reference information.
A list of websites to search for sheet music
The various tunings mentioned
Various bowing techniques.
I've been wanting to comb through the site and gather such info, and put it in a spot that's easy to find, an overall reference, and figured it could be a 'section' (Reference) where info is added as it comes up. I.E, the main thread would introduce the topic, and information from past posts, or replies, could be edited into the top post, maintained over time by whoever started the post.

Kye, I've long advocated for a FAQ section where beginners could go for advice on the kinds of things you describe. It never caught on though, I think because there are differing opinions about lots of these things, like bowing techniques, tunings etc. Also if there are recommendations for brands of strings, or even sheet music sites, it might discourage some advertisers or favor others.
