Hi folks, today i Heard this tune called there is no night and felt like giving it another try. A long time ago i remember i had posted a video attempting playing it. But now since some time has passed, i think it sounds a bit better. Comments are deeply appreciated, hope you guys enjoy it.

 

Juan.

Very nicely done.  I enjoyed it very much.

If I could play that well I would consider being a part time pro for events like weddings, etc.  Do you have any such longer term ambitions? 

Do you take lessons?

Really well done! Lots of feeling, nice ornamentations, pretty good intonation.

I was curious at about 1 minute you shift up into third position and then shift down for one note and shift back up. Is the piece written like that? I would suggest you stay up in third position and play that F (I think) over on the A string. That way you don't have to shift again.

Thank you very much Oliver, I take lessons every other week. As for longer term ambitions, I'd love to be in an orchestra someday. Problem is I am very slow when it comes to sightreading and playing simultaneously lol.

 

Thank you guys so much for all of your kind comments and for listening :D
