I do try to sing along in my head for the timing, but I dont find it easy, like everything on violin lol,
Dont think it helps that my hearing is shot in my right ear as well, I can sometimes hear if I am in tune and at others I cant, but its a good ĺaugh trying, I tend to sense if I am hitting the notes correctly with the vibration of the violin rather than the sound.
Thanks for the comments all.
Emily, I am not that bad, my left ear is ok it’s my right that’s the problem.
When I play it’s monaural, and may sound right but isn’t, when I feel the violin vibrate all the way through I know I have definitely hit the notes bang on, I was out by a few cents on some of those notes but close enough.🤓
