Hi folks here im playing the famous Air by Bach. Here I am doing it by heart. Im trying to incorporate dynamics and vibrato control. Consequently my counting suffered a bit i figure. There are some minor intonation issues which addressing at the moment. In this version i believe i sounded my best despite the flaws. I truely enjoyed myself.

Let me know what you guys think. Juan.

I don't think anything suffered, Juan.

That was superb.

Yes Juan. Not only well done but very brave of you to perform this A cappella.
Keep up the great work. 🙂

Thanks everyone to take a few minutes of your time to listen to me play. Strange thing is that i may like the way the piece sounds when im playing it but i never approve of listening to myself on a recording lol.

@fiddlerman thanks a lot bro! I got the second violin part to learn now it will be really good to know what it sounds like. Hope i can find someone to play this with.

Guess I was on vacation when you recorded this.  Nicely done Juan.

I also missed the thread somehow - sounding great there Juan !  

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes.  

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Juan, that was beautifully played!! You gave me chills, I love that piece.

It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself. Johann S.Bach
