Hello all! I went ahead and quickly recorded myself playing the Mario theme. I always get a little nervous when I play with others or record myself, so I got a little tense and there are mistakes and such, but hope you enjoy it!

I thought you did very well there. I didn't see any nerves. You have some good skills. I also like the vibrato.

Great playing Johannes!  You really do make that song look easy to play haha.  I see what you were talking about in the chat last night too, all over the place with the bow and the fingerboard as the song calls for.  Talk about a good work out!  Thanks for sharing man.

YES!!!  Bravo, sir!!

It's amazing how much video game themes stick with us after hours of playing those games!  

When I first learned piano, I instinctively played the Zelda theme!  ......hmm.....maybe I should try that on violin! :D

Ha ha, this theme really doesn't like its key; sharps and flats all over!

The Zelda theme is definitely one that I want to learn to play eventually. There are a good number of memorable game themes that I'd like to play; Super Mario 64's "Dire Dire Docks" would be amazing.

As for the Canon, we'll see. I might pass on this round. Too bad I wasn't around for the Ghostbusters one!

Just able to watch this and it was amazing.  I really enjoyed it and I'm drooling to be able to play like that someday...

Thanks Linda. Some day soon you will surely be playing even better than what's in that video! This was recorded after about a year and four months-ish of learning.
