Hi Fiddlefriends!

My wife and I loves this song. So I tried to learn it on violin to make her happy and play it together with her later. :)

Keep it up.

Great job! I think you should work on your bow a bit. Not that it's bad or anything, but from the sound, I noticed sometimes the sound would stagger a bit, so I think you could try bowing faster a bit, perhaps.

 

Other than that, great job!! :D

Hauntingly beautiful @Zippo! I can't believe you only played that song for 3 hours!

Lovely of you to play this for your wife smile
