It is actually a great way to practice left hand fingerings to learn a new song without the added confusion of bowing.

Not only is that a great way to practice fingering, I enjoyed the sound he was making.

It was pleasantly mesmerizing.smile

I don't know if this is a recommended way of playing, but the other day I tried something different. While holding the violin under my chin, instead of planting my right thumb on the fingerboard, I just let my finger be free. I found it easier, and I thought it sounded better. I think I have seen professionals do this before but I am not sure.

 

In regard to the video, I think it is great to be creative with the violin. It sounded good.
