That was very good. I think that if I saw that sheet music it would one of those that has too much black for me. Blows my mind when I see it. You know, 8th, 16th notes, etc. 

I also have issues with songs that long. I guess I have no “finger stamina” at the moment?

I love the sound of you violin. 

Thanks for sharing.

@stringy  Great work on that--not easy to play.

You seem more relaxed with it than the first time you posted it.  I think sometimes it's good to leave a piece & come back to it; I've found a lot of times I'm more relaxed the second time around smile

@stringy -

So great to see you are back playing this beautiful baroque piece! 

I've been following you in all your other "Aria Amorosa" threads.

You've convinced me I should learn this, too! 

Thank you, for sharing Aria Amorosa!

Emily its a good one for practicing slow tunes, which I am hopeless at, (probably why my rendition of this makes me cringe when I listen to it) there is a gIrl who plays it properly on you tube I will find it and post the link. I have come to the conclusion that it is impossible to play classical correctly without a teacher, and many, many years of practice though, so until I get  or if I get a teacher I am dropping all the classical except for one tune which I am learning from baroque Book 4 called Corrente, its quite quick which i like and is extremely difficult even though it looks easy, its 4 pages but I have worked through the first page by learning correctly one note at a time, its in g minor. 

I have not been practicinG actual tunes much at all lately, i have been concentrating on 3 octave scales in g a and , which are slowly improving my intonation especially in higher positions, I have learned Morrisons which I might post, but thats about it, 3 years playing and extremely dissapointed in more or less every aspect of my playing, which mostly sounds very amateurish and at at a very low beginner level.

@stringy -

Have you tried tuning down a half step (415Hz) to see if it is more enjoyable to play? 

I'm pretty sure the other people I've seen on YouTube are doing it with their Baroque violins. 

I did it for a piece I was learning last Summer & it was easier to play, but I stopped because of too many other tunes & didn't want to keep switching back & forth, but I think if I pick a total of at least 3 Baroque pieces - I could be happy staying tuned down just playing them for quite a while.

That sounds pretty good, especially intonation-wise.

I reckon you could slow it down a bit and concentrate more on the timing of each note (maybe with a metronome at first, set below the proper speed to get it into your head while you play).

Thats good advice jim, and you are quite correct, it does need slowing down, I also need to look at the gaps and inflections, it becomes obvious to me when I record anything, slow, I tend to end iup like a race car and run all the different bits together which gives the music a monotone, timing is one of my biggest problems. I have struggled with note length from the start.

I am as happy as a violinist can be with my intonation at the moment. I have found through lack of practice my bowing has started to wander, and is getting to be difficult to get back straightish.

Emily that idea of tuning down a bit is good, I hadnt thought of trying something like that at all, I would think it would give a more morose sound which for this one would be ideal, I will try it out and tell you how I get on.
