Hmm... this is not exactly a progress video. It's just me being all happy about not being as tone deaf as I've always thought.

Also, I speak in it, in English. My own Swedish-Australian version thereof. :D

Your cat is trying to say " that's the right note, that's the right note, you just need to use the whole length of the bow, go on...... more bow!

It's seeing moments of recognition like on this video , that remnds me why I started and make me want to pick up my instrument and practice even more. Well done!

I was born with nothing,
and to my surprise I still have most of it left!

Wonderfully entertaining video, Alma..... Like Terry say's, you need more bow stroke.

I think the vid is great and like Naska said, you make it look really fun.

I'm glad you lot laughed at my video. You're right, I had fun with that. This whole violin business is great fun!

Terry, that's some good advice you (and my cat) were giving me there. I'll work on it!

Your set-up looks pretty good to my beginner's eye. And it's great that you seem to be having so much fun with it. Also nice that your cat isn't running away when you play, like mine does, or clawing you to death.

thumbs-up

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

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

Great attitude. Keep it up. Also, your ear for the correct notes seem intact to me. smile
