These guys are surely going to be part of the "new" violin image.  I have a CD.  They are "impossible".  Go to 2:00 on the video.  Big finish.  They mainly play more serious music (below the speed of sound!).

Love it. and now I'm able to double click videos to see the whole thing instead of just the left side of the videos (for most now).

I did forget to mention that 5 years ago my wife and I adopted 2 rescued kittens from the huge fires we had. Orange Blossom was the little female's name from the rescue shelter and we named her Diva.

How did you fix that? I remember you were saying it did not work for you. Did you need to update something?

When I play on my busiest season I loose so much bow hair that I must re-hair every 6 weeks. As long as you don't press too hard you can play eight hours a day and probably go for 6 - 12 months no problem.

And seriously, it is all part of the show. I used to have discussions with my section about smiling when we had concerts. Lot's of classical musicians think that it is bad to smile.exactly

I think smiling would be great especially for happy pieces - but i cant play and smile at the same time. I'm too focused on what i have to do to make it sound reasonable lol!

It'll come Chinny. You are going to stick to learning this time. We will help you. You'll be so comfortable that you will be able to play, smile, chew gum, sing and dance at the same time. dancing

Maybe that could be a good exercise. rofl

Wow that sounds insanely difficult. Talk about multi tasking! Have you seen Igudesman and Joo in their river dancing video? He dances and plays the violin simultaneously dancinbunny
