Here's one of my own - I've re-doing it right now, to make it in A instead of D, which is what is was originally in :

Man, I love the sound of that 5 string.  Really nice tune too.

Great job Jim. Like it very much. I too love the sound of the 5 string. Best of two worlds. :)

Ah that was fun.  Good job.

Thank you all for your feedback!

Actually, I had done another one - this time, playing in the key of D, then moving to the key of A (which would be the key you'd use if you were playing a standard 4-string violin) :

The key changes at 01'26.

Which key is best, do you think? A or D?
