Kim D,

Very very good for just starting out, lots of good advice to think about and work on applying.  

Also welcome to the forum.

Good talks!!!! Good info, questions and answers.

Godfather is one of my favorites... working on some changes in my playing to make it better.

Bravo to all... keep up the good work and questions and support.

Thank you @fiddlinsteudel.  I'm bowing with the metronome, as you suggested.  On the G string my arm is stretched out and I can't quite get to the tip of the bow with all fingers on the stick.  I can make it if only my thumb and first finger are gripping the bow.  I moved my hand hand up on the bow a smidgen and I can get within an inch of the tip.  After more practice, I will do a video so that I can be critiqued on the bow strokes.
