As far as your video goes, I really enjoyed it. I am not a video critique, but, I really enjoyed the video and your playing.
Good post @Mouse ! Pretty well 'splains it all
Beautiful playing @joyfulmom. Excellent footage.
.....You guys could hear the buzzing sound when I play open strings? It kinds of bother me but I am not sure why it happens.
@joyfulmom - just a few suggestions regarding the buzzing on open strings.... (this is not necessarily a complete list !) Also, most of the possible reasons I mention are often due to the fact the string is less dampened (and there is/can be more intense vibrations throughout the instrument) when played on open strings (stopped on the nut as distinct from the finger) - Although, I have to say the instrument sounds real nice in general and I'd be surprised if it is anything serious. Tracking it down can be a nuisance though
* Possible end of string in peg-box protruding too far through the peg hole and contacting peg box
* Possible mechanical looseness in some part of the fine tuner/s, or a problem in the way it grips the string ball or loop end
* Possible vibration of the tailpiece coming in contact with something - for instance chin-rest, or indeed within the tailpiece tail-gut tensioners/adjusters
* Possible groove depth on nut and or bridge
* More serious internal issues - but I rather suspect you'd be aware of that already
Somewhat embarrassingly, I myself spent a morning trying to uncover the source of a buzzing noise which was occurring almost always on open strings, and especially the G and D..... I was playing without a shoulder rest, and it finally turned out that it was the back-plate vibrating against a metal stud-fastening on the shirt I was wearing.... It took a while to live that one down I might add.... Really
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
I did notice your slides are unique in this to me. At least they are different and it put your touch on this tune. The first I noticed was around or just before :29 a couple around :33 one around 1:29 and 1:34 for example. Not distracting or anything..They sound great. Just different sounding to me. Good stuff.
