Developing personal style in playing
I developed my style in playing songs added more sense of music as i see it more dynamics and it goes with all songs first i play it then i add my personal style it was hard at first but after i imagined it it became easier and after doing it several times on many songs it became easier and easier

The person who refuses to love doesn't know the first thing about God, because God is love—so you can’t know him if you don’t love.

I think you are doing very well. I love the genre.

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

That was interesting to listen to John. I thought your intonation was very good.

As for adding "personal style" - so long as it does not lead to "bad technique that becomes difficult to correct" ( and I might add that I am in no way capable of making such a judgement - I'm still trying to correct my own bad-habits! ) - go for it! That's what makes each one of us unique, and capable of giving an individual and personal interpretation of / expression to - a piece of music. If we all played precisely the same - we may as well not bother to play music at all and just get a robot or automated MIDI synth to do it for us ! There are musicians out there - who - when you hear a piece for the first time - you just KNOW without seeing the performer - like - "That was Eric Clapton" / "Nigel Kennedy" etc etc.

Keep up the good work !

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.  

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

This is what it is all about. Putting your personal style to it. It shows how versatile the violin/fiddle is. Very nice work.

Patience is necessary to learn the violin: But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.-James 1:4
When I get discouraged: I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.-Philippians 4:13
