WAS AWESOME!!!!

Teach was very happy with every thing.  Tweaked my bow hole just the tiniest amount so it is now perfection!!  Oh and the reason Teach had me doing the shorter bowing - my shoulder was moving around too much.  Teach's prescription cured that.

Teach was excited that I was finding Bluegrass tunes to play along with the Suzuki lessons.  We ended the lesson playing Bluegrass with her accompanying me.  My Grandson was there and he started dancing!

What a BLAST!!

@Picklefish From a a chat some time ago - Why Teach wanted me to wait for the Minuet 1 - to learn to keep the 3 finger on the D string while I reach for the 4 on A string.  To make sure I "come in from the air" and not slide into it and to make I had the correct bowing.
