Hi folks I know it's been a while. Here it's the first movement of the Bach double concerto in D minor. It still has flaws but for now the most important thing for me to get the rhythm right.

Dont mind my serious face I've been trying to make a decent video for about two hours! LOL.

Hope you guys like it.

Juan.

Very nicely done, Juan. If there were any mistakes I sure couldn't hear them, but then, I'm not familiar with the tune.

Your intonation sound really good and your timing with the metronome was excellent.

You've come a long way.     clapclapthumbs-up

@Fiddlestyx  thank you so much Ken. It's a difficult piece but it's worth it :)

@Fiddlerman bro, i will play with my partner next Friday so i need to be as good as possible with this first movement. A while back ive posted a video with only half of this movement now i could do the whole thing :) Im very excited despite of the many things i have to work on :)

I like this piece.  I have heard several times this one played by David Oistrakh and Menuhin.  You are on the right track.  Go forward..thumbs-up

I'm impressed.  I hope you will eventually post the finished product.

Good show.  Very nice.
