As Emily knows I have recently started using vibrato after many months of hard practice, I have posted this video, which isnt a perfect rendition of the tune, the sequence is out of order, but I am using it to practice vibrato. I would be grateful for any hints or tips, or even if I am doing it incorrectly,  noticed after I had done it that my bow was slightly slanted, have to work on that as well, thanks in advance, I have re posted this here as I put it in the wrong forum😁

Don’t think I can give you any tips as I’m way too new to be giving advice but I really enjoyed listening and thought it sounded really good!!

Thanks greg, I have spent months on the vibrato and feel I am just getting it now, have to be careful I dont start dropping off other things like intonation, on listening again I sound about five cents flat, going to have to watch that. 

Thanks for the kind words Katie, if you think you hear or see something wrong tell me, new eyes and especially ears can spot things that are easy to miss.

You guys just don't realize how lucky you all are to have BIG HANDS for playing the violin and vibrato! (lol)

I agree with the above posts, you can hear a definite improvement in the sound quality and the vibrato is coming along nicely.

Slight upgrade, still rough as a robbers dog though.

I have now been playing on and off for two years, if you take out holidays its a year and ten months, I expected to be a lot farther on than I actually am. My goal was to by now be able to play night music by mozart to a reasonable standard, I started to practice that only last week so I am way behind were I wanted to be. I can now play fairly in tune in third position, fairly happy with the vibrato as well but overall disapointed really, I have put the work in every day for at least an hour and a half ,I think having no teacher has dramatically held me back but that cant be helped at the moment with the plague.

just started to practice fingered octaves if anyone has any advice it would be much appreciated.

@stringy -

Hey!  You relaxed near the end and opened your longer notes - nice! 

I still see/hear you progessing - just cut yourself a tiny bit of slack on your agenda. 

Thanx for sharing your video!

As far as Fingered Octaves, think Joy Lee has a few helpful pointers to make them sound good.

If the fiddle was easy to learn and master everyone would do it, 

I agree with Emily I see and hear progress, keep up the good work. 

I have the same frustrations I think I should be progressing faster than I am, so your not in that boat alone.
