One of my own compositions - The Tornado. Played by me on a KC Strings 5star Pro violin.

Hope you enjoy!

Fantastic! Any chance you are planning on recording a part (or five) of the "He's a Pirate" fiddler project? Cuz that would be great!

Great spot Jim, I closed my eyes and could almost see my car flying through the air.

Really Cool WF.

I love your 5 stringed viola/violin
Also the way you leave your fingers close to the fingerboard. You have a great feel for this stuff. Cool with the ponticello too.

Thanks for the post.

Congratulations Jim!  You are now a regular advisor.  On this occasion, since you mentioned you are taking carnatic lessons/guidance from Karthick Iyer (fiddlerforum) may I ask for a carnatic piece from you with the slides(gamakas).

suresh,

 

I'll need to wait till I can do this stuff better, before I post anything. I am still working on the basic sliding techniques 🙂
