Hello. Don`t know why I`m posting it. Intonation is so so bad, but, probably a little bit better than at my tenth day. Thanks everyone who is brave enough to hear it
One month??! Wow! Mind blown at what you've achieved already. Do you play any other instruments?

KindaScratchy, thank you! 1) He is a pirate, 2) castle on a cloud (ost les miserables), 3) escala palladio(only a part of it was played. Still learn it).
Mad Wed, thanks! The second month will be much more effective. Some of the fundamental skills are achieved (or partly achieved). Now it seems easier to develop because some of actions became automatic (such as string changes and straight bowing).
I have a question to you, guys. Is there any trouble with the wrist of my left hand? Watching my video I found that wrist is not free and flexible enough. I`m discourage by it. There are probably much more problems with my technic. Could you mention them? I have no teacher, so I really need your advices!
I recognized it right off. Great for only playing a month, a "bit" beyond Twinkle lol.
Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

About the left wrist: if You don't feel it's free enough - i think it's mostly because of the thumb - it sticks out too much. There's not enough of space between your hand and violin's neck. I saw some great violinists play like this, but i'm sure they don't feel uncomfortable. If You feel that way, then try to hold violin's neck like Pierre does in this video for example (actually there is an example when sticking thumb is also useful hahaahaa).
Try to find the most comfortable position of your left hand on the neck and things will be much easier. =)
Mad Wed, thanks again! I`ve fixed the problem. Nothing uncomfortable with my hands now. Almost a week I had no progress at all. Today something very very good has happened. Sound of my violin became significantly better and both hands became relaxed and flexible. I`ve also found myself able to do spicatto and staccatto. So many skills at one day. Feel myself happy
