So I have approx. 45 minutes total play time on my new violin and I was just thinking....Hey I'm gonna play around with violin-4 on the Christmas project and see If I can do it. Well since I didn't have anything printed at home I tried by ear. whew, wrong idea. I ended up on the A string playing what I thought was the proper four notes in the beginning. So even though I was in the wrong place it didn't sound bad for my first actual playing of full notes with bow and all. But what I got at times was the note would start out good then sometimes would turn into what I would call a feedback sound. Kinda what would come from a mic or something. I added some rosin thinking that might be the issue and it did help some. If I play the notes slow it's not as bad. If I apply more pressure on the bow it's not as bad. So I'm thinking maybe some bad bow technique. dunno

   I have now downloaded the pdf formatted sheet music and see I should have been on the D string I think. I'm still trying to grasp when to use different notes with different strings. I'll play that tomorrow and see how it sounds. I'm thinking after a few hours of practicing I might be able to do it.

This is how to learn and be your own teacher. You try different solutions and make note of what works and what doesn't. You analyze yourself and make it better. Listen to each and every note for intonation. Pay attention to how you draw the bow and how your left hand fingers are coming down, etc. Becoming your own best critic will enable you to learn much quicker and more effectively.

Your next step could be letting us look at your playing by way of a Youtube post and give you tips.
