Hey!  First video in over two months.  I've been working on an ornamentation, could someone tell me what its called?

 

 

Any advice is always appreciated!

 

Thanks!

Great improvement IMAO.

I'm not exactly sure what you are trying to do but I would call it a half step leading tone.

I wonder if you ever practice with a metronome or with a steady foot tap? I wouldn't mind the tempos a bit slower on Angelina Baker and Bile Em Cabbage Down if they rhythm was more precise and relaxed. Not that it wasn't nice but you could actually gain a bit with a bit more accuracy.

Hate those spiders. LOL

Thanks for the post.

@fiddlerguy  Thanks!  I do need to use a metronome more often.  Thing is I usually let myself get distracted with other things that I often don't give myself enough practice time and don't think about it.  I will make an effort to do that more though.

 

Also, I just now watched the video for the first time and I REALLY need to get better at bowing.

I enjoy your performance/ practices for us.

I also need to do work with metronome.  Thanks for posting. I see that you are becoming more comfortable with the tunes.... now is the shaping up part.  

The metronome part and bowing will come in handy.

Good work and nice to see ya...bug-1_gif

Good job! I'm determined to go into this with the same openness and desire for feedback as you have.

The ornamentation - I'd call it a 'chromatic run', but I know very little about anything... 😉
