a bit more relaxed, rocking the bow more, a little more focus on intonation

Thanks man, you guys def know how to make someone feel good! I know there is alot of work ahead and I was stoked that the last vid came out so good. It usually takes alot to get close and that was only half the song (part A) twice, lol. Im going to keep working on relaxing and wristing.

Love it!

Something I've also tried to play, and it's not as easy as it sounds, so well done.

I noticed in the second video the kid with the huge headphones has disappeared ... ROFL ... 

Someone once told me when you play an Irish jig you need to use some emphasis on the first note of each triple ... long short short, long short short ...

The wrist movement is another difficult trick to master, but it will come.

Well done!

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

I enjoyed this too.  It sounds very difficult!  Good job!

good start but youve got a long way to go. It needs to dance more. you cant just saw your way through Irish tunes , you have to have a feel for them. If you really want to play Irish music I suggest you spend LOTS of time listening to the music.
