Hi,

I wasn’t going to do this but I just thought oh why not but here is the first half of my concerto. It’s not filmed very well and you can’t see the bow arm but this is how far I am :)

Thanks Mouse I’m going to try and make more effort to play without my mute. I got a new e string today and I think I can tell the difference. I’m going to carry on with my concerto but I’m going to try Annie’s song using Fiddlerman’s tutorial

@katie m -

Wonderful! 

Hope it's starting to feel easier to record yourself. 

I tried some different brands of E strings that weren't right for my violin - made me think I hurt my ears! 😖  Hope you find one that you like to hear.

Try not to over-tighten your bow, it will make a difference in your sound and too much tension can possibly add to bow slipping. 

You are doing really well!

Thank you for watching and for the comments. My strings are a mish mash now now the e string I have is a gold pirastro ! I think I like it.

I’ll have a look at my bow Emily.

My ink is coming Saturday so I’m going to print Annie’s song. Still working on my concerto as my main piece !

I'm finally getting around to watching this. I didn't have a chance to view it in detail earlier, because I was away on a short vacation.

That's a very good start on the Rieding. Watch your intonation, though -- slow practice with careful listening is a must.

It's hard to tell with the camera angle and limited view of your bow arm, but it looks like you're sometimes tilting the bow stick toward you, maybe from overthinking your bow hold. I would suggest thinking about leading with the wrist on each bow stroke. As your hand rotates to follow, it will naturally place the bow hair flat on the string on down bows and tilt the bow a little away from you on up bows.

Ah yes that is really good feedback I really appreciate your comments!! I’ll practice that. 

I just started Annie’s song as well I’ll still be doing my concerto but I fancied doing something new and I like that it’s slower!

hope you had a fab holiday,

Rieding Op 35. The last 6 pages here if anyone else wants to have a go, unless it's already somewhere else on fiddlerman: -

That’s the one!

I’m giving it a rest at the moment kind of going back to basics trying to work on my sound! So I’m doing Annie’s Song because of the long notes. 

I’ll go back to the concerto I just think I need a break from and and it’s probably too advanced. I’m liking Annie’s song though. I will have been learning for a year in a couple of weeks so maybe I’ll put an Annie’s Song video up if I can get it ok on the ears!
