What feature of the Fiddleman Forum has been best for helping you to learn to play the violin ?  (You can only choose one reason ...... or two if you must) smile

1) Video tutorials.

2) Getting direct answers or suggestions from Fiddlerman about my problems.

3) The free sheet music.

4) The opportunity to post my own "progress" video (and practice a lot before I do that).

5)  Games such as the INTONATION game.

6)  Projects-in-progress such as the CHRISTMAS "orchestra".

7)  Exchanging information with other forum members.

8)  Any other (?) if I forgot.

 

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

I could not pick one. I like all the free tutorials and I like the relaxed atmosphere on the forum. When I practice I like to take a lot of short breaks and visit the different topics instead of just a strict forum about learning alone. Learning about everyones thoughts helps give that family feel and that helps me learn about fiddling too cause that is one thing we all have in common. And Oliver...still waiting for you to post a video .-) jimi-hendrix

6)  Projects-in-progress such as the CHRISTMAS "orchestra".

@pky  &  g STRETCH  I know what you mean but will the group be as tight when the membership roster continues to grow ?

@CHINNY  I happen to agree with you about the CHRISTMAS project.  This event combines a lot of opportunities for personal improvement.

@MGM   I'm not sure what topic a video should be but it doesn't matter.  I can only reliably make MP3's now.
I have waited 40 years for those punk computer engineers  to make a decent computer and it has not happened.  I still have to waste time chasing converters, plug-ins, file types, etc. and I'm sick of it.  I'm also sick of trying to read instructions that only a pharmacist could understand.
Is your video inquiry about audio or video(graphics) or both ?

I know you use a PC for internet but how about this for simple?

  • With your Mac open "QuickTime Player" found under the Applications menu.
  • Choose "New Movie Recording" under the "File" menu.
  • Press the red round button to record.
  • Press the same button(now square and black) to stop the recording.
  • Under the "File" menu choose "Save for Web" or "Save as".
  • Choose a location on your computer that you can remember and press "Save"
  • Go to YouTube and upload your video. exactly

All this providing you have a new enough Mac to have a built-in web cam of course.

Thanks for starting this thread. You're the man 1st-place

I had only looked far enough to do QuickTime Audio and I'm sure I will now look for and find the Movie function.

But isn't it irritating that I also have iMovie, iPhotobooth  and other Apps and I wind up resorting to QuickTime which has to be 15 years old and cost nothing dazed

Yes, I do have an on-board camera.

wwwww.. mmmm. Hard to make a choice! If only 2, then

1.  4) The opportunity to post my own "progress" video (and practice a lot before I do that).

 

2.   2) Getting direct answers or suggestions from Fiddlerman about my problems.

 

Because that 2, i think, is really near to clear the mess in newbe's head.birthday_balloon 

And all the videos and other are the "direct answer" about my and other's problems!! devil-violin
