I've been trying to get back to my practice lately after a few months of almost none! Apologies that I haven't been very active in the forum but I'll remedy that
Here's my rough work in progress to mark my one year (plus a couple of weeks!). I have a mute on as it's the only way I can play in my apartment, so although I'll take credit for most of how it doesn't sound good, I'm sure at least 1% can be attributed to the mute hehe. It's a pity to always have my MJZ muted but
I seem to have a lot of the same problems I did months ago when I last posted in March:
- Clean string crossovers
- Using enough bow
- Loose wrist
- Dynamics although I find this tougher with the mute. I have dynamics on the inside. They're just not expressing
- Bow control
- Etc, etc!
I'm making some little improvements on the above, or so I thought until I watched my vid. Funny how that works
I welcome any and all constructive feedback from this wonderful group, to help me keep improving.
Shell we have missed you!! Great job!!
The only thing I can suggest is SMILE!!! We are having fun!!

FIDDLE- Gift from a dear friend. A 1930-40 german copy, of a french copy of a Stradivarius. BOW - $50 carbon fiber. Strings - Dominants with E Pirastro Gold string.
Thank you for the kind words and encouragement everyone Starting to read up on the forum and see all of my old friends here is very motivating for me!
@Fiddlerman Someday I hope! Meanwhile I play piano, wispy all the time which isn't helping me develop dynamics and may be developing other bad habits in the process I'm always trying to play 'tiny' and I think that may impact my bow usage. I need to remember that even playing softly to use more bow.
@coolpinkone, @schaickI genuinely miss you too!! I hope we can catch up on here one day soon! I'd really like that
@Uzi - Thank you
