Last week I learnt:

I am bad at moving down on the fingerboard and have there bad accuracy on intonation. This has lead me to wanting to play more scales.

This week I learnt:

my intonation in the low positions on the G-string is dreadful! i still have not figured out what to about it yet 🙂 i guess scales on the G-string 🙂

What have you learned about your playing the last week?

Sounds to me like he is paid with beer and life's enjoyments. LOL
My teacher is the same Barry.

 

To answer lenasv, I have learned that I should change my strings more often this week. I was going to record and some notes were changing pitches. I changed the E and A and the problem was solved.

Also learned that I should do a little more warming up before performing. Was playing a wedding and the first 3 or 4 pieces were so cold until my fingers were warm and loose.

Learned that fiddlerman members are great, loving, helpful, fun and love the fiddle.

I learned that patience is a virtue of which I am sorely lacking.
I do sincerely hope my enthusiasm for learning to play the viola will outlast my need for patience to get a working instrument in my hands on a regular basis.

Tonight I'll be using my son's 14" viola to work on finger positions. Hopefully, I'll be able to claim some "learnin'" on that front.
