Did my hours practice at lunch today it went fairly similar to yesterday. little improvements here and there, perhaps slightly less squeaking. Still painfully slow changes between strings when anything higher than first finger is required on the new string. 

 

But I took the practice mute off for one go at twinkle twinkle and just one or two notes seemed to sing, lifted my heart and brought a massive smile to my face laugh and once again I can't wait for my next chance to practice.

Congratulations Sam! I can't wait to hear it  🙂

On "Cheap eBay violins" … Just tell people they are like a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.  With a little love, and some practice, they too can be made beautiful.
