This is one of the two I've been working on for the last two weeks. The other one isn't quite ready to share yet and yes, I heard the flat notes on this one lol.  But just throwing it up here because I am trying to get over my video fear this year.  Besides, it's a fun one to play.

Nice going 1stimestar!!! I like your bowing a lot. You seem to have worked a lot on rhythm which is pretty good. Good staccato too. The only suggestion I'd give you is to try to anticipate more when there are string crossings so that you can you can get your hands ready. I know they are hateful lol but with practice they come out clean and nice. Keep up the good work!!!
