The Power of Love by HUEY LEWIS & THE NEWS???   

 

https://i.pinimg.com/originals/a1/be/2a/a1be2ab2937799c6f2659853afe4be49.jpg

 

...or, Céline Dion? 🤣 

Actually, if you are talking about the worship tune "The Power of Your Love"(?), I might've found something to help.

  

 

I'm still not sure which tune you are working on.

Emily I was looking at Jennifer Rush Power of Love using some of the phrasing to practice vibrato but my main piece at the moment is Song from a Secret Garden. 

I’m getting bogged down trying to practice rhythm at the moment though. My practice is all over the place.

@Katie L -

I don't think you should beat yourself up about rhythm until you've experienced playing a lot more music.  If you had a teacher, you'd probably be playing along with them & getting help with rhythm from the teacher. 

The Fiddlerman tutorial video is about as close as it gets to having a teacher! cheerleader 

Use a laptop (or go to YouTube Channel on your TV & search title) to pull up this YouTube video, "A Tune a Week #35" - Song From a Secret Garden Tutorial from Fiddlerman

You can adjust the speed of the video by clicking on the settings icon, if you need to make it slower - even if watching on your TV. 

You can right-mouse click, then click 'loop' on laptop - but, I have NO idea how to loop a TV YouTube Channel video, just catch it before it ends & restart (I hate ads).

@SharonC -

Excellent tutorial! 

I would've never thought to go to 3rd position, because of what notes were visible in Katie's attachment.  Do you always make sure you don't use open strings?

Thank you for sharing that! 

  

I'd also consider 4th if there are not a lot of G's around.

Depends on how crucial/difficult it is to find and correct the C# (if it's slow, you might want a more emphatic C#). Sometimes the pinky is too much of a risk for this.

Thank you Emily and Gordon. I found some good videos on rhythm. I go to bed tapping 1 e and a , 2 e and a.. it’s going to take me a long time I’m improving though I reckon. I meant to put all this on my blog so sorry to clog up the forum with my nonsense ha ha… back to my blog for updates now 😁
