Yep, that's the tricky bit all right.  I tend to practise that bit over and over.

I'm loving playing it though, I get Judy Garland's voice in my head ... then I play, and she's sort of clutching her throat saying 'I'm turning into a camel ... '

With the first 4 2 4 2 4 2 4 2 section I'm experimenting with continuing, moving the 2 to the 3 position, because I find the 3 4 3 4 bit a little of a stretch (if you get my drift).  Then the 31 3 1 3 1 is challenging, I'm trying to practise with my 3 more bent to keep it out of the way, but keep it down.

I can't wait to get a video up to show everyone ... but I don't want any laughing or booing and hissing ... I'm just a beginner.violin-student

I made it all the way through the song, then decided to video tape myself playing it. Opps! Too soon!  I have not been able to make it all the way through without any large boo boos! I see Judy Garland rolling over in her grave, she is not getting any rest as long as I am murdering this song!

Thanks Daniel, not sure what happened then, I tried to put the message in CHAT, because it's not really on topic, but it disappeared.

Anyway, I'd like to see others try it too.

If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.
