Hi folks here i've recorded myself practicing this classical piece. It was just a random recording so it's just an audio file. I will make the video this weekend though :)

Hope you guys enjoy it! Comments are very well received :)

Beautiful Juan!! I always love when you perform this.  No comments other than it's beautifully played and you have so much expression :)

 

I just posted a new one too and would love some helpful feedback if you have time

Fine job, Juan: You played it very smooth and I really like your vibrato, not to much not to little. Intonation to my ear is spot on.

I guess I missed the part about audio only, I was looking for a video and thought my computer goofed up.

Thanks for posting that.

I loved it Juan....I would be a very happy violinist if I could play this by the end of summer.  Great job. Thank you.

@JuanFiddler ... do you have "special sheet for this?"    also...do you recall in the hangout the other day we were talking of a song... and you told me the name..and it is one the FM plays on a tutorial?   I can't recall it.. I love that one too... seems like it was the song on one of the GVC violin??

HUMM.. not sure.. I might be confused... (suprise?  right?)

It was the cinema paradiso soundtrack. You can find the sheet in the public domain :)

Awesome! Perfect vibrato and nice bowing. The only thing I hear is some intonation issues- mostly to the flat side. How long have you been playing? I wonder how long till I can play this well :D I'm jealous!

Hi folks, I simply waned to say thanks to all of you who took your time to listen to me playing. Your comments have helped me keep my head high when i think my playing literally sucks :)

Cj, thank you very much for you comment. Yes it still has some issues im currently working on :D On and off i've been playing for 2 years consistently but theoretically ive started the violin journey 3 years ago :) How about you?
