Worked on wrist some thanks to a video @augustoad linked me in my last thread. thanks Augustoad!
Please lemme know anything you see or hear. I realize I'm not in frame as much as I should be... realized it too late though, sadly. I'll fix that next week.
Thanks for all the support and critique everyone!
I am crazy too!! I can not get enough violin.
You are definitely improving!!
Something that Teach had me do to help me curve my fingers better was to overlap my fingers further down over the frog. My bow has a pearl spot on the frog. She had me put my 3rd finger on that spot.
My index finger is usually slanted more forward but it is really hard to take a picture of your hold by yourself. LOl!! Who knew?
Time flies when you are having fun!!

FIDDLE- Gift from a dear friend. A 1930-40 german copy, of a french copy of a Stradivarius. BOW - $50 carbon fiber. Strings - Dominants with E Pirastro Gold string.
Great job, your bowing improved tons! I still think you're applying too much pressure to it, as I heard a scratchy noise every time you changed the direction of the bow. It might be my earphne's fault, it's kinda crappy and all, but I still suggest you take a look into that.
Also, I believe you should practice your finger positioning, as some notes were slightly out of tune, but not too bad if you ask me. Still, same as before, I recomend you take a look into it.
Other than that, you're doing great! Keep it up!
Oh, btw, Fiddlerman has a ton of helpful videos about finger positions. I'd link you if I wasn't on my phone, but they should be easy to find.
