I decided to record this tune as a way to have fun and improvise on the violin. At this point this tune is kind of cheesy cause everyone is playing it :D but i like the melody. Here my purpose is to give it my own touch. Hope you guys like it :D

Absolutely lovely, Juan. Nothing cheesy about it. Everyone is playing it because it's a hauntingly beautiful tune. And you're just as good at it as Jay Ungar, IMHO.

Very, very nice Juan.  That's a really great sounding fiddle you have there.

Thank you guys so much for your comments and of course for your support. Rarely am i satisfied with my playing so im always trying to work on it. Showing myself playing is hard enough so imagine what i feel like when im playing for others lol. Again Thanks a lot, your words mean a lot to me :)

@JuanFiddler That is wonderful!!

Someone define cheesy!

Here is what I thought was cheesy.  An MD I once knew, wore a gold chain, unbuttoned his shirt halfway down his hairy chest, wore white shoes, BUT he was old and thought he was hot stuff!!!
