For your perusal. I ended up only running through the tune once, although I have been told it should be done twice (AA,BB,AA,BB) as I took all morning just to get this far on the recording. Thank you for your input.

Nice done, Ripton! XD

I like your left/right hands incorporation and the tone. Intonation is awesome too (i see You can hear when You're out of tune ;) - it's very important, because that way You'll fix it eventually).

If You'd like to have some critique: tempo is not even during the piece, though i'm not really familiar with it, so i can't tell if it's meant to go faster and slower, but i'd recommend for now to try to hold the even tempo, that will be very useful later =)

Also (i tell it to everyone, including myself =)), if You lifted the bow above the strings  - try to put it down before playing a note (that will reduce the bouncing a lot).

Keep up the great work!!

I would like you to use some slurs from time to time. It's way better to play the down beats down bow instead of up. Especially when you do 16th notes.
Of course you have intonation issues but so does everyone else in this world. The important thing is to recognize them and strive better your intonation.

Great job, keep up the great work.

Thanks for the kind words and advice. Mad_Wed, yes my timing has always been one of my biggest struggles. I did emphasized the altered tempo for effect. Not sure how well it sounded, but that's a good point of working it out evenly. Always need to work on the bowing which goes right into FM's comments. The piece does not have any slurs, but I will ask my instructor about adding some in. The piece is her arrangement. Not sure where the tune originated as I can't even find another play of it online anywhere. 

 

I'll work on this a little more and post an update in a few weeks.
