Having fun on the beach.   Trying to keep the bow straight, the fingers bent, the wrist straight, the elbox tucked (and also having fun just jamming along).

Nice! Looks like you were having fun. Did you shoot that in a mirror?

When the work's all done and the sun's settin' low,

I pull out my fiddle and I rosin up the bow.

LOL "Go Fiddlerman!!!!!!!"

One tip, even though you didn't ask for one, is that you try holding the violin more with your jawbone instead of your chin. Right now your head is cocked to the side and that could create tensions in your neck in the future as well as get tiresome quicker than normal.

Great job, thanks for the post.

That's great... yes of course I welcome any and all comments.  Alright, so keep the tension out of the nck/head.  Amazing what a whole body instrument this is!

Always assume I do want feedback...  that song was "Knock knock Knocking on Heaven's door).  Thanks for looking out!

 

Go Fiddlerman!!!!!!!

Lol, love the end! Were you improvising with the guitarist? If so, that's awesome!

Had to say though I thought you'd be at the actual beach enjoying all the sand in places where... well... moony-2173
