So... I got new strings today (yesterday technically) and immediately made a video after getting home... unfortunately I assumed the strings would stay in tune between being tuned at the store and getting home (with lunch in between)... nope!
Also, as of this week, I've been playing a year! Why Week 48 and not Week 52? Because someone stole my first fiddle and I went about a month without being able to play.
So to celebrate I got the aforementioned new strings.
@Fiddlerman also mentioned that my bridge was leaning a little and I had that fixed too.
I thought about just remaking it once I had time, but honestly when I started doing these I said to myself I'd post them even if they sucked hard, so this wiill be an eternal reminder for me to be careful. Although, I do think I did an alright job making up for the wildly varying strings in some parts :D.
Please hit me with any critique you have, please keep in mind though, that the strings are very out of tune >_<. I was also in a rush to get the video done. Its horrible all around.
Thanks everyone for all y'alls help! I'm very glad I found this site. Everyone's very friendly and helpful and I seriously appreciate anything anyone has to say.
Hey @SecondFiddle ! You improved a lot since the last video of yours that I watched. Keep it up!
As you said, the violin is out of tune, and it shouldn't take too long to tune it up - specially if you have one of those cromatic tuners.
I think you could work a bit on your right hand's wrist - it seems to me like you are moving your arm instead of your wrist. If you move your wrist instead of your arm, your bowing will sound a lot smoother. Take a look at this video:
Hope it helps.
And keep it up, you're doing a great job!
