@Katie L  Sounding good!  You’ve got the shifts both up and down. 

It takes a little time for your brain to learn that “A” is not only 3rd finger on E string (in 1st position), but is also 1st finger (in 3rd position); likewise with  D (on A string). 

And your brain is not just learning the positions on the fingerboard—you’re also learning to associate them when looking at the written note on the page. 

And, of course, when you’re focusing on all of that (like that's not enough), your right hand is trying to do string crossings! 

I think you’ve learned to focus well, so this may already be intuitive for you, but it’s ok to focus on one thing at a time.  Like, “Ok, I’m going to play this part & focus on the shifts” and not worry so much about the bow.  Then later say, “Ok, now I’m going to focus my playing on the bow at those string crossings”. 

Early Days of Winter off to a great start!smile

Thank you Sharon yes I totally understand what you are saying about concentrating on one thing at a time. I’m also trying really hard to memorise the phrases. 

I can’t believe I’m playing in third position either! I’ll keep working on it ! 😁😁thank you for all your great advice it’s obviously helped me massively !!

Great work!!   Leaning to shift will free up your playing to do variations/arrangements of song you know and will learn and different keys fun times.

Thank you Mark ! Although I think this is a one off because the piece has third position notes. I feel like I still have lots to learn in first position - finger patters I can’t do and scales I don’t even practice! Saying that though I am really liking practicing it. I have family coming today I usually play them something but I’m not going to ha ha !! I just can’t do it !!🤣

Thanks Sharon, Mouse and Wtw for watching ! I’ve removed the video now as I had a weird copyright thing from you tube !

I’m having a break from Winter and started on Jerusalem! Bit of a change ! I’m liking it though. Although no practice at all today ! No time … rubbish !

@Katie L -

Just edit the title you used, to something a little more cryptic - YT is so ridiculous. 

I noticed a copyright 'restriction' (but authorized okay for YT) with my 2 'CountyDown' GP videos - and my videos are ALL set PRIVATE!  I'm pretty sure you'd have to be trying to make money off someone's arrangement (literally selling their arrangement) for there to be any true copyright issues... but then again, this World is getting pretty weird. (lol)

HA!!   hoist a jolly roger and put it public!!   arr matey..is MIRE Tune now 😁 

disclaimer.. dont do that..lol

copyright claims arent much to worry over for atuff like we do here..from what ive read.  think it means unless you file a protest with them within so many days youd either be limited or banned from monotizing.   theres official vids out there that explain it and how to file a response when you decide to publish and get ad revenue.

and i think more comes in to play than just the title.  think it analyzes the entire video.  probably wrong though.

sorry..just wanted an excuse to type arr matey 😉🙂
