Well, I heard someone complain that they bought a shoulder rest, but there were no instructions on how to fit it.

So, I made a video to show how it's done. I did post this before, but someone else complained that there was no music on the video.

So I did a soundtrack for it.

Then, I had *another* complaint that I played a few notes out of tune. Well, as you can imagine, I was not impressed. How dare they!!

So, just to be on the safe side, I took some intonation lessons from the esteemed Professor Ebeneezer Skankpuddle, and here is the much-improved result!

I followed your directions and found that it gave me a strange pain in my left shoulder and chest. Could it be that I didn't follow your directions exactly? LOL

Thanks for a great and funny video @Worldfiddler
