Very nice.  I like how you took your time with it.. you did great.  Others can help you fine tune it up a bit.. But damn...good job.  Impressive...keep it up.  You seem to enjoy while you are playing and I think I might have learned a few slurs I might add to mine. BRAVO!

Great start.  

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

VERY nice!!!  Great Job!

Have you tried loosening the tension on your bow a little?  A fellow forum fiddler advised me to do that when I first started and it helped with bow bouncing and sounding "tense."  Now granted, my bowing is horrendous, but it's the little things that help the most! LOL  

Can't wait to see and hear more!

Very nice playing. When you start playing in higher positions, you don't have to cross strings so much if you don't want to.

you know what I love - even though it wasn't technically perfect, your playing still made me feel the feels. It's like your passion is tangible. I wish I could do that! Your slurs and vibrato are just gorgeous. I don't have any advice to give because I'm lower on the rung, but I can say I loved this.

Good job.
Also, nice acoustics in that room. :-)
I can see why you choose to play in it.
Thanks for the post!
