PDF's can now be uploaded here using the insert/edit image icon insert/edit icon
above.
Also I removed the limit on picture posting size. Just try to keep the images low if possible. 

@ Robyn - What kind of file? Most likely you do it easiest using the same icon.

And I've downloaded, brought the file home, printed it and already begun to practise.  It's not difficult at all, just have to watch my fingers.

I've also accidentally found a way to record myself.  My broadband at home is slower than snail mail, so I go visiting with my netbook and use a friend's wifi.  Now I discover the netbook also has a built-in video camera, which my home computer doesn't have, nor does it have a mic.

So when I've got some more practice time in, I'll post a video and ask for critique.  Now I just have to get my brain-arm-finger co-ordination together for vibrato without sounding like a dehydrated camel.

Wish me luck.

Thank you

I was just looking at the piece and I see lots of "upbow" notations. Some are consecutive, is that a tiny pause on the upbow and then upbow the next note? I know you took the time to post the music, then I ask you a bunch of questions. Let me say again, Thank You!

Y'all can play with the backup audio posted above as a short clip.

@David    The consecutive up-bows are intended to drive you bananas dazed  Given a few of these you will run out of bow!   I've been thinking of getting a longer bow rofl

(There is a legitimate reason for consecutive bows.  It is to get the bowing routine back in step with bowing convention ..... like starting the next phrase on a down stroke.)

Oliver is right. Also your theory about a tiny pause. Don't think of the pause so much. Look at is more as the next up bow, new note. Play exactly as you would have if you had changed directions except continuing up bow.

There are many reasons to do this kind of bowing. Among them is something we call, "Economy of the bow". For example, in 4/4 time, you may be playing a half note down-bow followed by two quarters. If you were to play the following quarters up-bow down-bow, you may not come to the right part of the bow for the next bar plus you will be starting the measure with an up bow and that might not have the optimal articulation. Instead you play the first half note with a down-bow and the next two quarters up-bow, that way your down-bow is just as long as your up-bow = "Economy of the bow"

cheers

I was listening to Judy Garland, "Somewhere Over The Rainbow" in the car on my way to work this morning and kind of came to the same conclusion. I was imagining myself bowing along with the melody. Ran out of imaginary bow! It became clear to me why the upbow repetition. Just did not know if I was supposed to lift the bow. But I also found notation for that as well, so just play the notes on the upbow, no lift, do not think of it as a pause, just stop start. Thank you! I know you put tons of time into this and I want to let you know I am really having a great time! Brought my violin to work today. 100 degrees in the shade and I am playing "Dixie" in the shade. My crew is certain I have lost my mind! Thanks for all you do, keep up the good work!

 ... Now I'm not being ungrateful Fiddlerman ... but is it ok if I use different bowings?  I know why you've put those in for our instruction, but is it always set in stone that the bowing is as noted?  And is it allowed for a little expression, eg rubato?

Humbly yours

Robyn

It's great that you use the bowings that work for you Robyn. The most important thing is that you know why you are doing what you are doing. These bowings are just suggestions.

I started "Over The Rainbow" last night. Wow, it is all over the place. What I usually do is butcher the song. I play each note, reading from the sheet music. I don't pay any attention to half, quarter, whole. I just get the mechanics of the song down. Where my left hand needs to me where the bow needs to be. Then I gradually begin to play the notes at their assigned values. I get some strange looks from my dogs!

This song is beautiful, I just hope I can do it justice.

Here comes Daniels long awaited Ave Maria by Schubert:

Hope you all like it. It is maybe not quite beginners music but with some hard work you never know. I added something new, see if you notice what it is.surprised

I don't know what the down bow in brackets means, but I thought it might mean to play the notes as one? just a guess.
