Hello everyonehats_off

It's an honor to be here and a big thank you for fiddlerman for providing such an opportunity!!!

This is my first post. It's me playing the Godfather theme.

Please any kind of criticism is accepted. I need to perfect this. And please give me your thoughts about the sound of the violin and the vibrato.

I've been playing the violin for about a year and a half.

Thanks in advance!!!

That was a great job. (Next time try not to center the camera on the bright ceiling light, LoL)facepalm

For a year and half you're doing great!dancing

There's a 'party thread' on here that CoolPinkOne started with Godfather theme. Awesome if you stop in there and post this.

 

Also, welcome to the group (or family) as we all are here for support and many started from nothing at all. You're going to love it here...

@Shawrma2 :  I didn't see a video. Your intonation is good and your vibrato is coming along. But your violin sounds like a horn.

Try doing a video if you can.

Welcome to the forum and will lood forward to more of  your posts.

Nice playing Shawrma2, especially for a year and a half.  As denny already remarked, that ceiling light is great, though.. Very bright.  LOL

Sound was a little thin, but I'd guess that is more what you used to record the vid than the instrument.

Thanks for the video Shawrma2. You are doing great and I believe that Dennis has a great point, your instrument sounds a bit like a horn but it might just be the mic in your camera.
You get a critique badge for this video and I was able to see the video above too btw.... I guess it's hard for us to have the formats that work on all computers, OS's and browsers... Youtube seems to be the best solution for this site so far as you probably figured out since you reposted the video that way. 🙂
My suggestion is that you learn to straighten your left wrist. It's hard to break bad habits but it will be much easier to play down the road. You'll also find that you can reach more notes that way especially on the G string. Many techniques are not doable in that position.
Welcome to the forum. 🙂

I fixed the sound issue; it was something stuck in my right f-hole that caused the buzziness.
