Hope you folks enjoy this. Recording ain't my strong suit but it's not that bad. 

Pierre, thanks bro for the great bow I'm very happy. Sorry about the bouncy bow I was nervous. Although I don't I'll get any better than this. Anyway comments and feedback are very well received.

Juan.

Bravo Juan. You definitively sound great using that bow. I'm thinking it's very much your improved technique but also a great bow.
Thanks for the post. You are sounding better every time I hear you. Keep up the great work.

Very nicely played Juan.

Juan that is utterly beautiful.  You are making music.  Beautiful music.  I want to play that song.  I might have to chat with you and reconsider my decision to get or not get this now.  After all it is a personal thing... But maybe a players soul connects to the wood and an aura or something more .. Bravo dear friend!

Superb job, Juan. You're sounding better and better ever time you post a video.

Great vibrato too and intonation is great. I also agree with the badge reception for you.

Keep it up. I gave it a 5 star rating rating.

Nice work, Juan, enjoyed it very much!  The sound was real nice and had great "depth" to it - let alone the techniques you brought into play!   Thank you!

And yes, agreed, get the man his badges - well deserved !  LOL

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.  

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

@coolpinkone, if you want to learn this tune (and some others), I recommend this sheet music book. It seems to be pretty accurate and comes with an accompaniment CD.  It is under 10 bucks shipped -- if you have Amazon prime:
