Any critique, this recording of the butterfly was a oneshot. i was racing off to do my juries. Any critique on my skill level or things to work on. I am also adding videos of me playing so you guys can see my bow hold and other things. Be brutal i need honesty lol.

Wow! That was awesome!! amuse 



Your posture and bow hold look good as for me!

Though if You want some critique: You could fix the intonation on the E string a bit. I think You are now on that level, where it shouldn't be a big problem blink

(facepalmsaid miss Bad Intonation, LOL!roflfacepalm


Thank You for the video! Great job! thumbs-up

Great job Butterfly,

I like your finger vibrato but maybe you can lay off on the vibrato for the blues. Or maybe just turn it on for the climaxes. Speaking of which.....Do you know where they are? I would LOVE to hear the same thing with more dynamics. :-)

I like "Improve On A Dime" but am wondering if you can make more of an impact with a slower tempo on that one. Close your eyes and listen to yourself. See if you can apply more feeling this way and with a slower tempo. Is this your own composition?

Thanks for posting. Look listening to more.

Both of the other two were off of the top of my head. I walked on to campus and there was a talent show happening so i got on stage and just went for it. The cash tune was the same except there were three of us and we knew  the basic layout of thew song.

Thank you guys for the critique, now i  know somethings to work on for practice.

About 'The Butterfly'  I know you were in a rush, but the tune was too rushed, just in the way you played it. All pretty much OK apart from that. By rushed, I mean not the tempo, but the way you are not giving the notes their full time value, and as a result it gets slightly faster at points, and the whole thing has a tendency to speed up,and you don't give it any chance to 'breathe'.

I'd work on that :)
