I rediscovered this site and forgot I once joined it.the way it happened was doing a search on why my recordings sound so bad when I'm listening to a replay from a casio camera recording.

well anyway to stay on topic i'll post the video from a couple years ago,lol

I've made considerable progress since the video, but my recordings still sound awful to me.i read the link here on fiddlerman.com and can appreciate why.

however; nothing can prevent this one from sounding bad as a self taught beginner learning by ear.............

I forgot to add, this was a video I made to send to the nice lady that sold me the violin.first video, and probably three to six months into ownweship.

I can't get over how unforgiving the instrument is.

 

and bless my poor wife and son who had to endure my practice,lol

cheers

Good job!

I feel very sorry for my neighbors, I really hope they can't hear me as loud as I imagine they can, lol.

I don't think it sounds bad at all, especially for someone learning by ear. clap I admire that ability in people. I can never seem to get hang of playing something by ear.

It's easy to play any musical instrument: all you have to do is touch the right key at the right time and the instrument will play itself. Johann S.Bach
