Well, I can recognize the song easily enough.  I think you have it coming along quite well.  Will you be playing with accompaniment or strictly as a solo instrument?

The only actual criticism I could offer is that you might be playing a bit close to the bridge in some places for some of the notes if you are trying to match the timbre of the vocal versions.  An example would be around 2:35-2:50 on the first video. 

But it is sounding pretty good, Tomi!  thumbs-up

Tomi124, Thanks for the post.
Very interesting. Lot's of good stuff going on and a lot to work on as well.

The violin, especially by itself, can be boring if everything sounds exactly the same. You need to listen to your recording and notice that there is very little variation or color to what you are doing. Make it interesting. Add dynamics and phrasing to your performance. Also in your tempo. A little variation, take time and hold some of the notes a little longer.

Intonation is everyones problem. Noone is perfect but take the time to play super slowly while fixing every single note. Every note is important and keep that in mind when working on this piece.

Thanks for the post, I look forward to the next one and progress on this piece.

Don't vary the tempo if you are going to be playing with a background track. Mainly I was referring to phrasing and dynamics. Make it special and exaggerate the dynamics. Even if there are none written, figure out what makes sense to you by maybe singing and analyzing it. Just know that you can make it that much more interesting if you color it with dynamics and phrasing.thumbs-up

Glad you are enjoying working on this.

Keep up the good work.
