    If you were by yourself and had no knowledge of the violin, as long as it pleased you, you would deem yourself good.

    LOL...had to laugh at the Ukulele comment. See my blog.

    Theoretically, if you were the only person in the world who played this instrument you would be the best violinist.

    Now if you lived in the real world and started playing the violin this way and others joined you in "learning your art" then you would be judged according to your own standard of playing - in Ukulele form - than in the form it is most attributed.

    It becomes apples and oranges. Rather than good or better.

    (There is such a thing as Pizzicato in violin. A plucking of the strings. It just isn't done in guitar form.)

    Hm. Well, in that sense, "good' is a purely relative term, as has been pointed out.

    Even though I am ISTP, I prefer to muse upon the philosophical term. Relative judgments hold no appeal.

    Then these questions have no answers

    There's a book called Good and Evil by Richard Taylor. Me thinks you'll like.
