Crappy video quality. Youtube also cuts recording before I finish, I think.
Bad crunch some during 4 string -stops. I was also flat with the third/fourth fingers, esp for the thirds. Still need to build up left hand finger strength.
Any tips to reduce crunch with bowing during the 3,4-string notes?
The video seems to be recording vision at about 1 frame per two seconds while recording the sound track at a realistic speed.
I also do not understand about what is meant by the 3,4 string crunches, but guess you might mean double stops on the G & C strings (only because that is where I would most likely expect problems).
After looking at another of your Youtube recordings, which displays at a higher frame refresh rate, I learn that you had a viola until 2010, when you returned it - so possibly that was a hired/borrowed instrument.
I think it would help Pierre more to help you more if you attached the .jpg or .pdf file of Hoffman Opus 96 exercise to your next reply, and give a numbered reference to the bars in question. (Lower down the screen when you are typing a message you should find a button labeled "Attachments", click that to add a file from your computer.)
Are you in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore or elsewhere (answer optional, just curious). ?
I'm chinese, living in the states.
I began with the violin in 3rd grade, and switched over to viola during 12th grade. I'm in college now, and I recently bought myself a new viola. The posted video was made about 1 week after the purchase. =B
Pierre, what do you mean by rounded bowing exercises? I was commenting on how I didn't like how weak my triple- & quadra-stops sound. I wanted a solid, crisp sound, but what came out was.... not that. =\
Terrible frame rate was caused by wifi. It's rather distracting; I'll be weary of it next time I record.
