Hi Gibbles and Fiddlerman;

I have a bit of trouble hitting the double stop on Violin 4rth Part. How about an open g string & G on D string, bar 22?  Or do you prefer just the G on D string? 

Thanks,

Violingal violin_girl

You can choose either note.
When all the parts come together it won't matter much.

Hi Fiddlerman.

Will do. I am restarting my violin playing and realize that I hold my violin too tightly and don't have flexibility for double stops and great vibrato.   Your videos are inspiring me to get more relaxed and I want to play jazz and blues like you!!

Greetings and thanks from the Pacific Northwest.

Welcome to the forum and back to playing.  

 

Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.

@violingal - Very nice. I'm glad to hear it.

Yes, holding the instrument too tight can cause unneeded tensions which will both make you tired and be counter-productive in producing a better sound.

Ad libbing and playing blues is a lot of fun.

Thanks Fiddlerman and Georganne for your kind words.

Had lots of fun doing the GOT video and look forward to the final video!  

Cheers,
