Though really, I am sorry about the audio. I'm going to start looking into it. (Does anyone else have this problem, so many things you want to buy and can't afford it?)

More finger flexibility, straighter bow, work on intonation, don't freak out in front of the camera, anything else?

I like they way you let go and experiment it, shows in the way you phrase things. honestly, at month 2 I think youre kickin' ass. youre a guitar player so you already hear what needs work as you got the ear and it shows. practice and time grasshopper

Yea, most of us freak out as soon as the record button is pressed. You're bowing is looking much, much better.  Keep it up, you're doing great. Oh, and the most important thing of all about playing the violin (at least that I've discovered) is to relax and I mean everything -- shoulders, arms, wrists, fingers, pretty much everything  -- except for enough tension in your legs so that you don't fall on the floor, which would really mess up the tune.

I will add one thing here. when I first started I'd get a piece down and the minute the camera was on it all fell apart. I over came this by recording myself on a regular basis and not actually posting them all online. If you get used to playing with it on during practice you'll soon learn to ignore it and it'll become less of an issue.

Dont get caught up in the smiling thing, you'll smile when it feels right.

Keep up the good work young lady, we got your back

I'm thinking of just making a mask with a big ol' smiley on it, and wearing that in the videos. What say you guys?

I think I can speak for all of us and say, no don't do that. You're just fine the way you are.

I agree, dont cover up your face, I kind of like the intense look

Maybe I'll just cover my face in a few months for a Halloween video.

Great job for only 2 months Panda-P :)
Your bowing is actually pretty straight. Great progress there.
Yes you could use finger flexibility but that usually takes time.
The mask is a bad idea but smiling in front of the camera would be super cool at least once or twice. :)
I really can't see that you are uncomfortable in front of the camera which is a good thing.
Try using slightly less bow (shorter bow strokes) on the short notes for a better sound. The longer and slower notes are fine with more bow.
