Does anybody has a easier version of this? ==> http://www.easysheetmusic.com/.....ini_barber

 

Is the dot per note indicates that it should be played spiccato right? and what the purpose of ribbon( line connecting to the other note )? if X note is connected with Y note should I play the Y note or should I just add the beat of Y note to X note?

 

Sorry if I'm too confusing.

That's as simple as it gets Roq XD The dots mean staccato, detached, quick notes. 

And the correct term is "tie". For example measure two, you play those notes (c 8th and b 8th note) with one stroke of the bow. This is called a slur. Google "playing a slur in violin" (or maybe Pierre will make this his next tutorial video) Wink

To play it, put fingers 1 and 2 on string a and pull down, releasing finger 1 and leaving finger 2. C then B successively. This should happen in the space of one beat. Two eighth notes equals a quarter note, which equals one beat. So in answer, X+Y in time. But if there's a tie between the same kind of notes (X+X) you simply play the note longer. 

 

(Sheesh, that looks very complicated... take it from me and find a video, it will clarify things better than reading)

 

 I notice that's a weakness in self study, the theory is somewhat neglected, use this site(http://www.musictheory.net) The lessons you need for this particular subject are lessons

"Note Duration"

"Measures and Time Signature"

and "Dots and Ties"

Studying these shouldn't take longer than fifteen minutes.

I'll be away from late morning today to Sunday evening, so no more posts from me. However, maybe I'll make a video for you to follow next week Roq. And Daniel is right, the original is much more difficult to read.Frown

Thanks Daniel actually "Nose bleed nako sa english nyo xD", I found a site indicating the different dashes and dots (http://sheetmusicpoint.com/mag.....nd-dashes/)

and it was very helpful, I'm kinda confuse with Spiccato and Staccato; All I know is Spiccato is bouncing the bow(I learned from a tutorial of Pierre) and is Staccato maintain's the bow on the string but fast and no sustain? I'm pretty unkowledgeable when it comes to reading a music because I'm just depending on my knowledge that I learned from my High School which is E(very)G(ood)B(oy)D(oes)F(ine) but it was helpful. Do you think I should need a real life music teacher? but honestly I never dreamed to be a professional musician I just want to have a lil knowledge and to enjoy music :))

Staccato is similar. The notes should be separated by silence.
Can you afford a real teacher? It could be good a few times a month even if you are only playing for the fun of it. Cool But we can do a lot online.

Yep, maybe twice a month because it's only 250-350 pesos per hour(if 1dollar==43pesos; it should be 5bucks to 8bucks per hour)? What do you mean ===> " Cool But we can do a lot online."?

I never learned Every Good Boy Does Fine, my music teacher realized that Ernie Gives Bert Dead Frogs was much more memorable.

Lucky you, the only teachers here are Philharmonic Orchestra players, and they cost Php 1500/mo(4sessions). The 250 would have been nice to have here in Dipolog.

You let us know what you are struggling with and we will work with it. A lot can be done here on the forum. I'll make appropriate dedicated lessons if I think that they can apply to several players. Anything that helps you will probably help others as well.

@Daniel: Yeah I'm very lucky but I'm not sure if they're professional like Pierre.

@anathama: I'm used to Every Good Boy Does Fine but thanks for your advice :))

@fiddlerguy: "We will do it. I'ld say two months with your talent :-)" I hope so, Yeah and atleast I can manage my time here than applying for a music school.

 

Thanks guys!

Thanks Pierre! That info about position 2 around measure 9ish was very helpful. I know it's not so easy to make a video, but could you play the "We will rock you" for reference? 

Hey Roq, check out 1:12 on the first video…there's the slur.

By all means, leave me your requests and I'll try to get to them. It may sometimes take time depending on gigs here at home but if this helps you learn to play, I'm more than happy to do it. Also, I am expecting the new fiddles to arrive soon and will want to get that out of the way as well.

@ Daniel - "We Will Rock You" now on my to do list 🙂

Thanks Pierre! the part where "Buddy you're a boy" and then the notes go lower than I expect confused my rhythm so I got confused in turn 🙂

Another awesome video! I like how you put the bowing for all of the music. I have a hard time with bow managment.

 

How long does it take to get the 4th finger limber enough to reach the notes? I have to move my entire hand most of the time, and have a hard time keeping the 4th finger in tune even then.

Make sure your left elbow is placed enough to the right so you "roll" your fingers over the fingerboard.  I have a hand big enough to almost lift a basketball from the floor but that doesn't help my fourth finger if I'm out of position.

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