Just a quick clip of me dinkin around on the local uni's music stage with a surprise ending!

 

Note to self: Don't expect to play well when your musically tired after 3 hours of practice.

Talk about capturing the entire stage. A solo no less.

That's great to be able to play on a stage like that by yourself. thanks for sharing your video. Scarborough Fair is a great song.

I hope to be getting some stage time a few days a week, nothing like playing in a big room with great acoustics. And the great thing is, its hardly ever used at night.

I'll try to get some more vids up as I go along, and hopefully I'll be more musically fresh. Oddly I was nervous up there under the lights with only my ears to enjoy the sound, and I guess this was the first video recording of myself.

Nice!  Good playing, peanut_gallery!

And a good reminder that the acoustic violin is a lot of music in a very small package.  It is highly portable, so looking for places to play that happen to have nice acoustics and be just seriously cool places to play can definitely be part of the fun!

Thanks everyone!

I enjoyed playing up there more than my first gig and with the opportunity to hopefully play up there a few times a week, I'm going to get rather spoiled.

Might try again tonight after my lesson.

Did the lights cut out on you after you were done.

Good job. :-) Thanks for the post.
