Been using the snowblower so decided it was time to do something warm;  so recorded summertime;   Some glissando,. some trill, first time I've exposed any vibrato to all y'all       give me the straight scoop, brothers and sisters., no need to sugar coat it.

That was great, Gary, @gwscheer.

You're getting better and better.

Very well playing for this tune. Your best to date and I really enjoyed it.

May have some suggestion await on chat for you.

Thank you for sharing.

Nice mate. I can see and hear the improvement in your bowing. It's much straighter than it was and you are bowing in a nice position between the bridge and the finger board.

Being an 'acoustic' player myself I would say to back off the reverb a bit, but that is a personal thing. I've just put a pickup on mine and bought a preamp as I soon have to play to a large audience in a large room and my main concern is keeping it sounding like an acoustic but just louder :)

Its a shame your tuning pegs fell off rofl

And finally, I want that hat. Pop it in the post to me ASAP. roflol

Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of dunno ..... What was I saying???? facepalm

Wow, you're getting better all the time. :-)
I would like to see you use more right arm elbow.
Also, I worry that your neck may become sore eventually with your holding positiong.
Lastly, be patient on the long notes. Pretend that a rhythm section is playing with you and hear the beats in your head while playing this. Even when you play by yourself there is an element of time passing with all notes and rhythms.
Thanks for the post. Very cool....

Thanks @Fiddlerman , I will work on all of those;  sometimes it is like "whack-a-mole".  Concentrating on left-hand things suddenly my bowing reverts to a stiffer wristed, less elbow style. It probably just means I need a lot more practice with better bowing technique to make it muscle-memory instead of needing concentration. thanks   gary

This is really great and I love the trills :)  Not qualified to critique but had to say how much I like the recording and am drooling over your eviolin.

Nice Job.  I like!  Thanks for posting.  I agree that your practice is paying off for you.

I also know about that "whack-a-mole" thing.. ha ha.. good analogy!

Cheers,

Toni
