First violin video. It's Lightly Row (or the German version Hänschen klein). Let me know if I did something wrong, so that I can improve, but don't be too hard on me :D I'm still a noob.

Nicely done Carina.

I remember learning that piece. I played it in a higher key though.

Welcome aboard

Great start Carina,

The intonation is really good except for the open G which is not in relation to the other notes. I'd love to hear you do it again with your violin properly tuned.
Use this tuner if you like:http://fiddlerman.com/fiddle-l.....ine-tuner/

Another tip would be to not stop the bow so much. Play longer tones and more connected notes.

Great job. Look forward to hearing an update.

Great job Celacia!!!  The only thing I could point out that FM hasn't is, your left wrist is really nice and straight, and you got your left arm really nicely under the neck,,, how about if you try a different position of how deeply into your V (between thumb & fore finger) you hold the neck; you've got the neck really deep into the V, and you will get a lot more mobility if you put the neck more on your first thumb knuckle (inside knuckle of course).

Can't wait to see more!

Pain from playing? Sorry to hear it. Don't push yourself too hard in the beginning. Get used to the stretches and position slowly and once you are used to those new positions, you will be able to play as long as you want.
Also, consider stretching before you play, at least in the beginning.
