My morning practice is usually 30 min because after that my fingers are too numb, my arm hurts from staying up all the time and I simply feel I had enough. But this morning I did 50 min without realizing it. As always the arm pain was there and I put down the violin then look at the clock, "oh mon doux!" I'm starting to finally build up some endurance woohoo! Song of the wind, that I did not practice in 3 days, went super well and He's a Pirate is starting to feel less of a struggle. Slurs on Brahm's Lullaby are shaping up (when I'm not out of bow lenght lol) and I was able to sing along Mon Amant de St-Jean! Planning on goofing around more on Sad Romance this evening.

I salute everyone who can play for 1 hour or more! It's hard!

I played for a whole hour with a few coffees in between! Now I can pull my bow properly the notes were such a surprise I couldn't stop....my fingers are throbbing.

 

I have Sad Romance too and tried to play it, but I don't think I am ready yet. It didn't sound much like the one on youtube! - I wish you luck

Sad Romance is very ambitious Mimi 🙂
I admire that

Start with first part Mimi. I practice only that one for now until I make no mistakes (kinda tricky with the 4th to 1st switch at the beginning). My difficulties are with the 4th finger of course lol.

Congrats, NV! =)

When i started, the first week i could play about 20-40 min in a row, second week went better and now i can practice about 3 hours (if i have those 3 hoursamuse) with 10 min breaks every hour, that seemed to be impossible earlier, LOL! You'll get used too, Noir =)

Sad Romance is a good choice i think. It was one of the first tunes i've tried to play (though i still can't play it properly XD), i couldn't help - it's so beautiful =)

LOL! FiddlerMan can play 12 hours! XD surprised To the stars! LOL!

If seriously: don't forget to practice only when it's pleasant and easy, don't overtrain! I remember before concert i used to play 7 hours in every day off. I't bad but i just couldn't stop... Though it didn't help...XD
