Just want to say that Fiddlerman sheet music has become a daily routine for me.  The reason is that the sheet music contains a lot of "pro" level articulation insight ..... bow control, spicatto(sp?), slurs, fingerings(4th), etc.  An area in which I am sorely lacking.  It is not easy to find the same range of "tricks" in a piece of music still at the "easy" level. 

Someone who could play even the beginners pieces would be well on the way to exciting possibilities down the line.

I have taken a few irons out of the fire, I would like to play the pieces I know well enough to where someone would say, "That was beautiful" instead of, "I recognize that song."  Very tempting to download more, but I want to get rid of squeaks and squawks, missed notes and uneven tempo. I have a lot of work to do.   lol

All amateurs have a lot of work to do.  That's why we are amateurs.

En route however, I like to "pick brains".  If I know how pros think then I will understand more about how they play.  I have no scruples about such theift.

And to boot, IMHO, playing violin may be more mental than physical(?)
