Hi Folks, this is one of my favorite pieces in the classical world. In this video Im working on rhythm, bow distribution, shifting, vibrato, staying relaxed and of course trying to convey feelings through the instrument. Kind of ambitious aint it? Hope you guys like it.

 

Juan.

Well I don't get on here much lately due to other demands on my time, but when I get a call from someone to take a look at one of the fiddlerman students progress, I have to stop my rush of things and check it out.

Usually a few seconds into the tune I've heard everything I need to hear... but this time...

OMG, Juan.... you have come so far in such a short time and you sound fantastic! Not only did I listen to every last second of it, I had to listen twice! I was looking for mistakes, considering how long you've been playing... you didn't make any man...

 

AAWESOME PERFORMANCE!

Sounds great! I've been practicing this one as well. I think this would be a fun group project also to be honest.

@coolpinkone @cdennyb @Schaick @AdverseD I truely want thank you guys for taking your time to listen to me playing and give comments on the video. I just want you to know that all you guys feel and think of it, really makes me grow and motivates me to keep playing even when i feel im worst at the instrument! I also like that fact that you guys let me know not only when something does not sound as good as it should but also when Im making you feeling something through my playing. To me, that is the most important thing even more important than being a 100% in tune. Again thank you so much :)

 

Juan.

Wow juan that was BEAUTIFUL! I actually enjoyed listening to it, and Air on G is one of my Bach favorites for sure. I can't wait to get to your level. I need bow control like that!
