It remains in first position the whole way through.
The first mark over the first note is called a down bow and is indicated with that upside down U. The slurs indicate that the bow should continue in the same direction. For example, the second to last bar is to be played with just two bows.
If there are any markings that you wonder about just let me know.
Thank you very much Fiddlerman. So far those marks i know what they stand for.
My question is, what part of the bow do you use to play all the 8th notes that are put together in there. I figure that might be done using short strokes from middle of the bow on.
Then, what can i do about mechanics for the left hand? When switching fingers sort of fast, i suppose that is a matter of warming up to go through the fingerboard.
I am being too ambitious, aren't I? lol.
Thank you very much Fiddlerman,
That tune takes me back, dug out my old suzuki book and gave it a whirl!
Sure sounded better this time,
Just goes to show you that it just takes time.
Its a real cofidence builder to return to songs that where once very hard.
I think its a good way to gage your progress.
Juan, Thats a really nice minuet . And was the first tune that made me feel I was really playing the violin.
Good luck with it ! I know you will do well.
No matter where you go, there you are!
Thank you so much Late bloomer, I do appreciate your support and somehow I feel I am asking myself too much since I've only had had 3 lessons.
But I am very ambitious and eager to try and risk.
A fancy phrase I've come up with over the years is, "not doing it right will make you learn faster" So when my "playing" does not go right I say to myself it's the chance to pay close attention to learn more in depth 😉
