shes pretty rough looking without make up and her fiddle. I guess she is waiting on the endorsement deal to divulge her favorites. I still have a Violin crush on her though, what a talent.treble-1226

I second your comment, Barry. She truly is far better looking and talented than you.

at least she's the "real deal", and not some 'photoshop queen'. I like a "NATURAL TALENT", especially if she's better looking than either one of you guys. LOL

Her point's on posture, the spine, neck position are all good things to think about. The chin rest, shoulder rest to achieve those result's and to be comfortable are like she pointed out, basically a lot of experimenting which is best for each individual.

Very informative post, Barry, thanks.  Give's us/me something to think about.

 

I like her natural look.

appologies to HH and Barry, I didnt consider remarking on her natural state a put down, more of a contrast to her make up look which I find more attractive. Between this post and the Chicken one, Im not winning any points here! ha ha! jimi-hendrix

LOL, guys!

Barry and HC! Bet you never (not everyday at least) makeuped yourselves, so i'm not shure if your comparison is objective LOL! =)rofl

Seriously: Thanks for the vid, Barry! It's always interesting to hear different opinions of professionals on things like that!
