I liked it soo much mad_wed ! Great job !

 

There is some imperfection and you seem to be upset because of it at the end of the video, but seriously, it was a pleasure to listen ...

 

So, get rid of these facepalm, and put some of these instead : thumbs-up !

HOLY CRAP!  That was awesome!

Now I'm the one that needs to get on the stick and practice more if I'm ever to get in the project audition.

Girl, you hold you head up HIGH, that was excellent.

Watch it yourself and listen to the 2 or 3 sections you kinda just walked thru without hesitation or drawing out the notes. Only a couple though and the very end sounded like you just learned that last week so don't worry, the practice will refine that to the level of perfection you have at the beginning. 

FM will be proud. Smile... you did good.

It was fantastic. I am proud. Plus you wear the Fiddlerman cap well :-)
The double stop with the 2nd was great, I know you were complaining about it. Of course you had a harder time with the first octave but you still did a fantastic job and I must say you are getting better with every performance.
Love the smile too.

Thanks, guys! I know you all are very kind but though i didn't expect so positive feedback! birthday_balloon

Hope that i'll be able to improve it a little till the deadline...

 

@FiddlerMan: unfortunately i won't be able to learn another part - since i was transfered to the ingeneer's dept i have a lot to learn for my workdazed. (And my teacher gave me "Chattanooga" to learn duncecap. I think she'll kill me if i still will not be able to tap my foot and play along rofl. And the "Solveigh's song" needs improvement very much).. I'm sorry frown.

OK, Naska.  Now I'm inspired!  That was great, and can only get better with practice.  Brava!

I have a quick question about the violin 5 sheet music. I assume the allegro 120 at the top tells me how to set my metronome. I can get the 120 and the 6/8 time, but it doesn't show a dotted quarter note. I think it imay be two joined eighth notes possibly with dots, it is hard to tell. Will I have the correct time anyway?

 

Depending on how long we have to turn in our videos, I am hoping to be able to do this without messing up too badly.crossedfingers

Same here, except I downloaded FM's fingering chart and it has the F Major scale on it. It only has a B flat, all the rest are naturals so it shouldn't be that difficult?

I think so, been at it for a Couple of weeks since FM loaded the video.
I'm not sure if I have the correct notes yet (or timing, my iPhone app metronome is kak!)

I'm hoping to give 5 & 4 a bash.

Maybe once we get the click track it will all come together lolthumbs-up
