Awesome job guys! And thank you @coolpinkone, I didn't know the name of that song.  Now I do.  Thank you!

Fantastic Toni,

You are definitely improving. The speed was up, the movement looked good, and you even smiled from time to time. I loved it. :-) Would also have liked to have seen the outtakes. ;-)

Thanks

I thoroughly enjoyed everyone's videos.clap

@coolpinkone: Love Greensleeves, and you did a great job with it both times!

@anonkid:  Katie, super playing! You were really in the moment, and that made it even more enjoyable.

@gwscheer: The two Garys, good job! Like the wall of instruments behind you there too!

@Fiddlerman: Pierre, so beautiful! It gave me chills, and I could feel every note.  Really enjoy hearing you play, and thank you so much for joining in.smile

@HP: Nice playing! I don't think I've heard that one before, but like it a lot.

@Picklefish: Really nice song and great playing! I have trouble with my left pinky sometimes too, like it has a mind of it's own.....lol!

Thank you everyone... I woke up from a nap and read the comments.  I still have to watch my own video...Usually if I watch the whole thing I won't share.

You all made me smile with your sweet thoughts, most of all I am glad that there is some improvement that is maybe starting to show.

@ratvn... ha ha... about your middle finger... ha ha ha

Does anyone else speed up a little with nerves?    I have trouble speeding up the bow and not the tempo. Any tips on that?

Boy this party has been fun... thinking of finding another one to post. :)

Good job, Toni. I usually get worse and worse with each succeeding try, so you're the exception, and what a nice exception it was, with your Greensleeves.

@ Steve.. thank you.

I think there is a decent take in those somewhere..but I talked at the end.. I felt a bit dorky... not sure if it is better or not.

Thanks... As much as I hate recording the videos.. I love it... does that make sense?

:)

Happy Sunday.

...

I have =( Big time. Only one tip: learn to relax. Every time i have to play on public, i reread Pierre's tips on relaxation and try to follow them, but when i'm on stage i barely remember to breath, hahahaha! So it's the matter of practice mostly as everything else =) Good luck with it, Toni! 

Very nice take BTW, Toni! You're improving fast! Keep up!thumbs-up
