I posted a better version of my first post of Moon Over the Ruined Castle into post 445. The first one is an mp3. I did a screen recording to make a .mov. I edited the picture part, because it is just a black screen, and made that smaller. That made the bytes small enough to be able to upload as a .mov. The sound is mellower.

Thanks ABitRusty and Mark. The input helps. I felt good when playing the version from book 3 yesterday. 

I grabbed my Allen Parker Folk Fiddle off the wall early evening. I just went through my normal run of songs I have memorized. That went well. I like the sound of that violin for fiddle type music. No recording. I was just messing around.

I needed to get a birthday card done today, so that is what I worked on. It is for someone born in Feb 29, so he has a bday every 4 years. Since this is a leap year, and I remembered he was born on Feb 29, I figured I had better do a card this year.

It will take. while to get there, so I had to get it done. I can wait a couple days before doing the other 3 cards I need, so tomorrow, I can get back to my cello or violin or viola.

I was working in Berceuse, by F. Schubert, in Suzuki. I notice I have a shrill A string, yet. It is much better with the Dominant Pro Strings, but I notice it a lot in this piece. Part is my bowing, I believe. I also notice my string crossing issues are more prevalent here. I this is a setup issue, which I will get looked at sometime from Spring through Fall, reliable road condition months 😂, usually no ❄️❄️❄️.

This is the first recorded go round.

This is the second recorded go round.

This is a good piece for bowing practice, and double stops. I have major issues with double stops. Not looking for tips. It feels different in the cello than the viola and violin.

You play really good in both.  I think in the 1st one your cello sounds more open and vibrato comes through stronger.  cello just seems to ring out more in that one.  enjoyed listening!

Thanks. 

I have a little 15 inch viola. It is a pawn shop save from a few years ago. It is cute, but not very strong sound, it is only 15 inches and student level, if that, so not surprising, but was priced right and cute. I am going to put violin strings in it for kicks. Just an experiment.

Oh, wait! Not deleting yet!  The title is Land of Confusion! Was that because of the posts about confusing each other? is it a joke? 

I am confused. 😂😂😂🤦‍♀️

Well, once I paid attention to the title, it finally dawned on me. The sun rose a little slow for me with this one. I am not deleting. This was funny. Thanks for the laugh.

So, I removed a piece I was doing to learn from. I really do not like it. I replaced it with Muse From English Suite No. 3 by Bach. I am also still working on the Berceuse, by F. Schubert. They are from the same book.

I then had to make a get well card for a brother-in-law who had a knee replacement.
