I already posted this elsewhere, but it probably belongs in this thread. This is nothing but natural harmonics!

Happy New Year! #naturalharmonics #playhomieplay #violatricks #viola

Allright then... I'll contribute :)) 

Even though it's painful to listen back, I have no more time to spend on this.. (would've been nice to do separate tracks for instruments and not projecting the violin into that foam making it sound like an electric instrument and should've done the intro as well) Postponing it would make it not relevant anymore, since now's the time for new years tunes 🙂 I still can't play properly in front of the camera... even if I don't look at it, I'm simply shaking... It's decent, don't get me wrong and I'm glad I manage to play something like this after just 3 months of playing violin, but to me it's frustrating simply because I literally played this 2 times in a row pretty much flawlessly (to my standards.. at least) before hitting the record button, but once there.. everything is falling apart.. 

Complaints and freaking out aside 🙂 Enjoy ABBA's Happy new year with my own rusty piano accompaniment I recorded on the piano beforehand :)) Happy new year to everyone!

(Also, this is the first song I ever tried implementing higher positions into.. I don't use the E string this time, instead shift up to 3rd every time for the high F# and E notes)
