You're hitting the right string pretty much without bothering its neighbors, so that is good.
I would have you try to turn your head more forward and hold the knob of the chinrest under your chin instead of putting your chin on the cup of the chinrest.
You are bowing from the shoulder a little. Try bringing your elbow and wrist into action instead, to keep the bow basically perpendicular to the strings.
Your timing is great. Good rhythm.
Your intonation is off pretty much. Try playing the notes slowly into the tuner to see that you are playing the pitch you are supposed to be playing.
I think you're doing well. I hope you keep at it.
Faith, congrats on getting the violin and starting your great journey! Not doing bad at all for your second day. Definitely want to watch posture a bit as it can come back to bite you in the long run from a sore neck, back etc. Intonation will come with time and practice I think but your timing like StoneDog is saying is great! Keep at it, the more you practice the better things will get. Remember the tutorial vids that FM has here, they will help a ton as you continue on and all of us will be more than happy to help ya along too .
Great stuff. Sounding really good.
Myself, I'm at about day 365. You have some great days ahead. Practice every day wheather you feel like it or not. Playing the violin is not a hobby. It will become part of your every day life.
Well done. Keep it up
Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of ..... What was I saying????
Faith... very nice work on your violin. You must have some kind of inner confidence and strength... the violin is such a great instrument, and you have clearly made a great approach. You are playing it, and it sounds great. Do you like the way it sounds? If you do, your efforts will continue to pay off each and every day you play. Do you have a goal to reach, or are you trying it out, or??
