With violins there is no fretting over the music.

What I hear, OO, is pretty good intonation. I also hear only two to three inches of bow being used.

Sorry I don't recognize the tune though.   dunno

That is played on my Cecilio CVN-EAV and FM's new strings. I will try and post the on I did on Zyex strings for comparing.

Good job OldOgre.

My critique would be to practice with a metronome to achieve a slightly more flowing rhythm. Dynamics would add color to the piece.

Look forward to hearing more. :)

I can't name the tune but it does sound an Irish folk tune.
