Juan you are exuding more and more reflexive confidence!!  That's some bowing!  How do you cross strings like that without the bow flying out of your hand?

Nice sounding violin, by the way... and beautiful.  What kind?  I note the fiddlerman hat... nice touch!!  1st-place

Great job Juan. If you don't intend on playing even triplets you are doing great but if you are trying to play even triplets try accenting the first of the triplets for practice. IOW's DOWN up down UP down up DOWN up down UP.....etc. Just think down up down up with the triplets being played in between.
Hope that makes sense.
Keep up the great work.

Thank you Pierre, yes I've been focusing on triplets and on achieving that cetic short crisp sound as well as keeping my right elbow slightly pulled back. Do you mean to accent the first note of every triplet? Accent as in loud or long sound?

There's nothing better than a cold beer and the warm soothing sound of a violin.

Juan is looking for a critique that will help him play better. He is looking to play this similar to say the way the Chieftans might play it. peppy and irish sounding. Since he is kind enough to help me learn this song, I thought Id ask yall to help a bit more. Thanks.

Yes Juan, the first note of every triplet. The accent is really for you only. You don't need to actually make an accent if you can think one. It will just help you play the triplets.
