Yay, another video. Something must be wrong with my computer's volume because I could hardly hear anything, so I'll focus on what I could see.
Were you playing each note with a separate up bow? It was hard to tell but it looked like you were playing each note with an up bow, then lifting slightly and playing another up bow for each note. Try starting with a down bow, then using an up bow for the next note. Keep alternating down and up bows. It will be much easier to sustain the notes. You won't feel like you need to take so much time between each note. You may want to use a little more bow too, maybe the middle third of the bow.
Awesome first video! Thanks for sharing.
..I was upbowing because I forgot what I was doing too much to concentrate on..
Same thing.. i was told that it will pass away, when some of the motions will happen automatically, and you will not have to keep in mind all of them..
Good work meanwhile!! I like your bow- it's pretty straight, your left fingers- they are close to strings (i still work on it ).. Intonation as for me is pretty good too (but don't forget to make it even better).
Your right pinky seems wants to hold all the weight of the bow.. Don't let it! Because violin (strings) already do it. Make it curved, it must hold the bow only when you play near to the frog. =)
Nice Job Fiddle 43. I'm still trying to find time to practice on my part. It's NOT looking good. My counter part has been out for the last four weeks with a bad ankle so I'm taking his place plus my shift. So far 27 12 hour days straight and counting. It gets tough on an old guy like me :). Love the over time though and getting some bills paid off.......
Great start Fiddle43, glad to see another Aussie in the Christmas project.
The only comment I will add is that your right hand seems a little too tense and stiff. The relaxation will come with time, but I'm sure you can see for yourself the great improvement already.
If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.
I've been working on my vibrato to try and add to the christmas project. I noticed FM did it in the violin 4 example
I re-watched your vibrato video and tried to have my nails so I could see them more. (I was tring to be too much like a and not enough like a )
Any other tips would be great. Thanks
By the way could FM or another administrator change the name of this post to "Fiddle 43 progress" or I can just start a new thread if that would be easier
