Can the false modesty, Joe. You sound good and you know it.
But since you asked for some "substantial criticism", I'll see what I can do. I think that if you relax your bow arm just a little and take longer strokes with the bow, it may smooth out the tone of your notes a bit.
I think you also may be doing something I have to work on myself, which is using more pressure than you need with your fingers on the strings. A tense left hand can't move as well as a relaxed one.
Sounding good though, and it definitely was not a wasted month.
Lovely sounding violin you have there, too. I like the tone.
"This young wine may have a lot of tannins now, but in 5 or 10 years it is going to be spectacular, despite the fact that right now it tastes like crude oil. You know this is how it is supposed to taste at this stage of development." ~ Itzhak Perlman
Good job, Joe. Good for just one month. The thing that stands out most is - control. You have good control on bow, timing and everything else.
More happy days to come, dude 🙂
