Very nice performance! You have a great ear for intonation. You were able to fix most of the out of tune notes quickly. I really liked how you used your whole bow too! Lovely!

roflol ROTFFLMAOWTO!! "Nifiga sebe beginner!" WAAAHAHA!! Thanks!

 

Thank you all, guys, you're too kind! XD

 

@Mustang -  That was OK for home-use, not for stage. I already can see a young mother with a kid sitting at the audience, pointing on me and telling him: "See, darling, if you will not practice enough, you gonna play as bad as this woman on stage". facepalm I don't want to play publically until i'll get something to show... I played once on my bass, but that was not solo and all of the audience was drunk so felt ok. But Playing SOLO at a school concert... No wayduncecap.. I will definitely escape...

If you want constructive criticism:

You hit some off notes... and well... I couldn't find any other problems! (Nothing else I could detect at least.!) So I would feel pretty darn good about the song!!! clapdancingclap

-You stood and held your violin well.

-Your bowing was great.

-Your vibrato was good.

-You played in a LOT of positions on the violin neck, which is the only place that you were really hitting off notes, which kind of says you aren't 100% practiced in all the positions on the neck, but got really close. coffee

-Great song too! One I can't find on the internet in a form that I could use to learn it at some point. I am trying to teach the macaw to sing this.  🙂 (If anyone knows of an ABC file that is not loaded with a ton of other instruments, or perhaps a simple MIDI, PM me. I haven't found any useable ones.)

Random comment: I like your big wooden cabinet too. embarassed

On "Cheap eBay violins" … Just tell people they are like a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree.  With a little love, and some practice, they too can be made beautiful.

Perhaps FM can give you a midi file from his finale. I only have finale notepad which plays a midi but you can't save the midi file but I believe the full version you can.

Aw that was a great performance Mad Wed! I really waited for you to go to the high notes and play the part, but you didnt 😛 aw, I've played Ave Maria my self before, and knowing me, I would have to make 50+ takes to play it with out messing up. So good work on making this, I really enjoyed it 😀

Other than all that, looking at your left and right arms, just amazing, i've been trying to relearn my techniques since last time I've got feedback from you, FM and couple other comrades on the forums, It's not easy but it looks so natural to you!

Ah well keep the awesome stuff up! clap

You have all the techno stuff going on great. Your arms, hands, fingers and you look very comfortable. As far as the intonation goes, it helps to play along to stuff while you listen to it instead of just reading it off the sheet music. Believe me you are better than me. I'm really still having a hard time with that vibrato and you are doing that well.

I have a scan of the shheet music. If you'd like i can send it to your e-male. /EDITED: e-male LOL i mean e-MAILrofl/ I can't download here any picture dunno probably because of size, but if make this picture small- you will not see the notes yell

-You played in a LOT of positions on the violin neck, which is the only place that you were really hitting off notes, which kind of says you aren't 100% practiced in all the positions on the neck, but got really close.

 That was the 2nd piece that i play in IIIrd position (after FM's Christmas Project v1 part wich was the 1st). So i still working on it. Heh, since my teacher found out that i'm not a total dummy in IIIpos, she gave me to learn Ave Maria and Por Una Cabeza.. I wonder if she coaches me for some kind of violin Marines duncecap

LOL!! roflroflrofl it's old and anfractuous and horrible

I have posted the Schubert Ave Maria otherwise I can give you guys any MIDI file you want. PM me with requests. Since I write them on Finale all I need to do is "Save As" = midi.

Thank you, I didn't know it but with finale notepad I can save as midi also.  It works great.  I have been taking most of the music I practice with and putting it onto finale and then running the midi.  Now I can make the midi files and just download them into my cell phone to use it like an mp3 player. Then listen to the midi and play along.

I wondered how you would respond to the comment about the cabinet. But I did not know I would have to turn to my dictionary to look up a word. Anfractuous?? Did anyone else not know that word?

I had to look it up too.  The forums are particularly educational today.
