I think if I play Wohlfahrt's no 3 one more time today my head is going to explode.

This girl is playing two of the bowing patterns.


I'm now at the 1.5 year mark of having a FiddlerMan Concert Violin.  It is still holding up very well, and is a great instrument to learn on.  

This etude (no 3) is one I like...  the first one, I did fine until trying to get the 8 million bowing patterns (ok.. so it was not really 8 million) right.  I could play the notes fine, but then when trying to do one bowing pattern but seeing just the notes with my eyes, I would trip up somewhere on the page.  After six weeks, I finally did them all 🙂   Now they seem to come a little easier.   I was ready to just take the book and make enough copies that I could then pencil in every single bowing on each sheet... but that would have defeated the purpose of the exercise.


ok...  now that I know my head is not going to explode...  maybe I should do it one more time, only a little faster devil-violin

I just started going through a Wohlfahrt etude book (is there more than one? I have no clue, lol) and I think it is exactly 8 million bowings, lol. I miss learning my normal fiddling slurs, lol. I like the challenge, though.

I bought this book and play the first 3 but not this fast!!!  It is fun though. Book 1 has 1-30 Etudes and there is a Book 2. 

@Taper123 this was incredible!!!!

I will only say this - I have started studying Wholfahrt's opus45 1st book in December 2014. I am now in etude #25, and I'm sure there are some things in life that I hate more than this book, but nothing currently comes to mind :/
