@Mark - 

PERFECT! 

I have not heard a more beautiful 'Silent Night'! 

Your 'Nearer My God to Thee" was outstanding, as well. 

Your tone and vibrato were just absolutely lovely, and

I enjoyed every second of both of your performances! 

So happy you joined the Christmas Party! 

THANK YOU! 

 

Merry Christmas!

Here is mine. It it needs a lot of practice!

Also been adjusting my shoulder rest and it feels much more comfortable and I’m not feeling like I’m looking down!

Well it was from memory as I mess myself up with sight-reading after hitting the record button. I know I missed some of the bowing and I missed a few notes but I count it as success. I really need to work on my stage presence as I look like I'm at a funeral. Thanks to Violaman for the arrangement.

That was great, @Katie M !  I wish my bow arm looked as good as yours does when I first started!  I had to do a lot of work to straighten mine out-- 

Are you using a Bon Musica shoulder rest (I think that's what I see in your video)?  That is what I've been using for the last couple of years.  I use a cut-up piece of red cosmetic sponge on mine.  It's not unusual for people to need to make adjustments to them--we're all so different in how we find the best, comfortable way to play. 

@Ripton That was wonderful!  I don't have too many things memorized--it can be easier to play when you've got it in memory, though.

We got us a Party now!

@SharonC ... here you go.  tuning E string is optional right?

           eggnog may have been involved in the making of this video

Was going to wear a lamp shade but figured it was a little over the top...

Btw, next time you change the oil in the Ol' Truck,

save some out for that pesky E string. (lol)

...why doesn't my eggnog have any of that stuff in it?
