Don't bother with critique on the playing or recording, this was a quick recording of the sort I don't usually let anyone hear, included here just to illustrate a point..
If you write/compose, or *want* to, then recording can be one of your best friends. If you have your set-up ready so you can switch to it quick when an idea just happens to strike in the middle of your practice or a chat or whatever, then you can capture the idea to work on later.
It is not a real good idea to think you'll remember it later, since odds are you will forget at least part of it.
Even if you think it is not a great musical idea, with some thought and development you may be able to turn it into one you like better.
But catching it quick is the trick.
This is a bit I came up with while chatting here on the board..
I caught it quick, after I'd played it through only twice. But now I can come back and develop it later.
I'll take care of a minor formality since at least one person has mentioned working on a version of this little tune..

Ok, it is now officially licensed under CC so that anyone can put out their own version of it if they like, and somebody else can't come along later and throw another copyright on it and claim they "own" it.
So anyone wanting to play it, perform it, come up with a version of it, or etc is welcome to do so for free. I'd appreciate a mention that I wrote the original if you put out something like a commercial release or performance using it, but that's it.
Good advice DanielB. With the guitar I recorded almost every time I played. I don't do that with the viddle so much cause I'm not ready quite yet. But when one gets to the point where they can start making up their own tunes it is so helpful to record as much as possible to > like you said > be able to come back and add to the tune without having to spend a lot of time trying to remember how to play the tune all over again.
That was exactly what I was trying to do, Pierre, thanks!
