Been working on it a bit, still not pefct, and a couple of bad notes. Its also quite difficult changing from pythagorean to just intonation while changing to third position from first, as the finger has to shorten the interval as opposed to lengthening, so for me it feels that the fingers are not going were they are supposed to, also I find having to listen to the tartinii tones fairly hard but I am getting there.

I like it, the double stops are sounding good and I like the 3rd position tone

 

Thanks for posting.

@Fiddlerman - Thanks so much !

@stringy - well, for the most part I don't even have a clue what you are talking about!  Amazing how every field has its own jargon - another learning curve to tackle, LOL.  But, I did think your playing was really nice - I practice double stops a little here and there but think it will be awhile before it actually is added to anything I play...

Thanks mark, great tune for practicing all kinds of things.

Lindee, it sounds like a language of its own but really its just terms to describe simple things, well, not simple to do but simple in their concept:)

Thanks Emily, I have put a lot of work into this, very difficult but very satisfying, and like I said to Mark, excellent for learning lots of different things, even though, its a simple tune, its beautiful.

@RDP Very nice. I liked the outside setting, very pretty, but enjoyed your playing, mostly.

@Mark That was very nice. Such smooth string changes. I have not been able to accomplish that, yet. It flowed so nicely.

I suspect the "mostly" part is before I started and after I stopped playing.

@RDP 

LOL That "mostly" was actually there before I edited it. The "mostly" was going to go with a comment I was going to make about your garden and I forgot to delete it! LOL 

I was going to say, about the garden, something about the tall grasses you have in it. With me the tall ones would "mostly" be weeds because when I did garden, we kept it with short items because of not wanting deer to invade or ticks. I only had a few tall items here and there. High deer ticks with lyme disease up here. I decided not to use that in my reply, I "mostly" deleted all the garden part! 😂😂😂😂

I cannot believe that I did that! ... On second thought, yes I do believe it. 😁

I think you're doing well when it comes to intonation.  On those days when it's "off" slow down and make sure you're putting your fingers where they're supposed to go and not just slapping them down any old which way on the strings.  That was part of my problem, along with the tuner going wacko.  Proper fingering along with good bowing is where it's at.
