So I've been back to work and haven't had all the time I want to practice, but here's my progress on the Adagio from Sonata no. 1!

Any critique is welcome :)

Great job RosinGecko,
I was taught that people actually danced to the unaccompanied sonata's in the day. Whether or not this is true, we need to feel a certain sense of rhythm when you play.
How did you learn this? Have you been listening to others or do you read music?
I would like for you to try playing it while wobbling, dancing or walking a bit in beat for a while. Most teachers would shun upon my suggestion since they want you to be as still as possible concerning the bow and string contact but I think you'll understand what I'm talking about when you try it.

Thanks for the post and keep up the great work.

Thank you so much, Pierre! I usually kinda step to the beat when practising, but as I was on camera, I tried to stay in view hehe. I learned from sheet and from listening to others play. I particularly like Jascha Heifetz's version, as he does nice little glissando into some of the notes, and that sounds beautiful. I'll practice more with the dancing though, and perhaps that will keep my rhythm steady.

That was really nice to listen to.
