Today is DAY 2!  I made a video.  How do I get it here?

I've learned so much from my mistakes that I've decided to make some more.

Well done Gail ... can't wait to see you.

If you have a Youtube account, copy and paste the URL.

There is also an icon here to insert media, though I don't know how it works.

Hope you get it sorted.

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.

DAY 2
I had to memorize this song because there wasn't enough room on my windowsill for the camera and sheet music at the same time. Lots of sour notes there, but I'll work on making my fingers land in the right spots.

I hope I did that right. Thanks in advance for your feedback!

Hi Gail and welcome to Fiddlerman.com 🙂
Great job indeed.

I would love to see you use more elbow on your right arm and get the 4th finger up a little higher on the left hand. That being said, it's great that you are using the 4th finger instead of avoiding it. Careful not to get a lazy wrist with your right hand. Keep it as straight as possible.

Lot's of great things. You produce a real nice tone and your fiddle has a great sound on the lower strings. Look forward to hearing the higher ones sometime as well.
Really nice with the introduction, the thank you, and the smile at the end.

Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the feedback! I'll work on the wrist, 4th finger and elbow (and ear!). When I played in high school the teacher didn't teach violin. He just put sheet music in front of us and we did our best. I never learned vibrato, but it's on my list of things I want to learn. I absolutely love the doublestop arrangement of Amazing Grace on this website. I don't know how long it will take me to get there but it's one of my goals to play it with vibrato. Next time I make a video I'll try not to look so grim!

Wonderful Gail! I think there's nothing wrong with your ear, I heard you correcting yourself. Can't wait to hear more.

Good! birthday_balloon I like your confident sound, Gail =)

One thing about bowing- try not to lift the bow without a necessary like at 0:24 and 0:34. I'm telling about that because i always do thatfacepalm and always get a thrashing from my teacher for that =) it's better to learn from mistakes of other people- isn't it ? XD

Apparently my use of me playing Twinkle Twinkle with Fiddlerman's video and posting it to youtube is a violation of Copyright laws.  I disputed the claim, but I might lose.  dunno
