Be gentle everyone. The good stuff is my teacher's fault. The bad stuff is all mine! LOL. 

In all honesty about a half hour into recording this I stumbled across my old bow skills. It's like POOF they magically appeared. And then, POOF they magically disappeared. Not that they were great, but they were better than this. LOL. 

Anyway, I'll post another progress video in July and see how this one compares.

One wonders if the damage would have been as severe had the chicken not been tied to the barrel.

Great job Artroland. Now you set the bar. I don't remember the details of how much you have been playing the fiddle this time around?

Two lessons, so roughly three total weeks of actual concentrated playing.

Lesson 3 tonight. I switched from the crappy rosin to Magic Rosin, and it's amazingly better. While it's true, no trinket will do the work for you, at least I'm not fighting the bow to get it do what I want.

Roughly the same amount of dust (it's a black violin) but it plays immensely easier now. 😉
