For your perusal. I ended up only running through the tune once, although I have been told it should be done twice (AA,BB,AA,BB) as I took all morning just to get this far on the recording. Thank you for your input.
Nice done, Ripton! XD
I like your left/right hands incorporation and the tone. Intonation is awesome too (i see You can hear when You're out of tune - it's very important, because that way You'll fix it eventually).
If You'd like to have some critique: tempo is not even during the piece, though i'm not really familiar with it, so i can't tell if it's meant to go faster and slower, but i'd recommend for now to try to hold the even tempo, that will be very useful later =)
Also (i tell it to everyone, including myself =)), if You lifted the bow above the strings - try to put it down before playing a note (that will reduce the bouncing a lot).
Keep up the great work!!
Thanks for the kind words and advice. Mad_Wed, yes my timing has always been one of my biggest struggles. I did emphasized the altered tempo for effect. Not sure how well it sounded, but that's a good point of working it out evenly. Always need to work on the bowing which goes right into FM's comments. The piece does not have any slurs, but I will ask my instructor about adding some in. The piece is her arrangement. Not sure where the tune originated as I can't even find another play of it online anywhere.
I'll work on this a little more and post an update in a few weeks.
