My intonation is off i know, :-( But i figured I'd show my progress into the tune. I'm also playing it at full speed. I'm enjoying it much though as well as my kids lol.

any tips are welcome!!

Well you already know about the intonation which sounded good during a few sections (at least to me they did)  So if I might suggest.  Loosen up the wrist on your bow hand a bit.  It kinda looks like you're using your whole arm for each bow stroke as opposed to, from the elbow down.  I'm no pro by any stretch of the imagination but I think that your bow control will improve and the "screeching" on some of the string would disappear.

Still,  Awesome job!  I'm not sure I could play anything that fast I'm certain that when my instrument arrives in the mail I'm gonna be back to searching for the fingering for twinkle twinkle Like I occasionally do when typing :D

Lookin forward to an "update" video in the near future to mark you're improvements.
