LOL!  I was so nervous- I get stage fright something awful.   When I played for the family, 30 people, at Christmas I was so nervous I put the shoulder rest on upside down.

When I first started recording yesterday it sounded like I was playing bag pipes. Really weird! Picklefish mentioned that he has to stand 10 feet away from his recording equipment,

I wandered around the house today, wore out the camera battery but finally found a spot that was tolerable some 24 feet away from the camera!!

Quite a few mistakes but I did it!!

That was great, @Schaick.

Very good playing for just a short time, and also the posted sheet was very nice of you.

You did well. Thank you for sharing with us and keep up the good work.

Good job S!  Next time, point the camera at yourself lol.  

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

Sounds good S > I agree with 1stimestar > thats a  nice looking duck but it is to your advantage to have the camera on you and your viddle. That way critique can be gathered to help you move forward with playing. It also helps those that can't play as well as you are playing now because they can learn from you. So next one > Lets see that viddle and a big smile.

Schaick I had to remind myself that you've only been playing half a year.  Great stuff! :)

Keep up the great work Schaick. Thanks for sharing both the video and sheet music with us. :-)
Maybe next time we can see you playing too. :-)

I thought it sounded wonderful, and I look forward to more of your videos. Try to get yourself in the video if you can.
