Figured I should make a thread for my violin video uploads too: Timescar extract
Whoa thanks for the essay, I'll have to slowly work my way through them Its nice knowing all the little things that I'm doing wrong like when my violin squeaks and it sounds like a fail harmonic note but I cant work out whats the cause of it (but now I know!).
I just found a recording of the same part on my laptop but theres no video and I used my electric violin with a lot of reverb and a tiny bit of presence. I did this about a month ago, obviously didnt have a very smooth start either and you can hear my hesitation. Just thought i should share it anyways here
You did great! I love the song, it's pretty catchy! I'm not an expert like the Fiddlerman, so I don't have much to say, other than you do have a haste start and that your right arm could come around a little more to the center of your body.
Try to play same thing while keeping your hand and arm more under the violin (elbow to the right) and not moving the hand to the left. (should be right, right? Since Chinny is playing a lefty violin)
thanks, nah im not using a lefty violin, my web cam just flip things around XD
WHOAAAA i havent been on this site in years (I printed the music sheet off more than 5 years ago and happen to find it again this year) and seems like they put up a pure violin version of it. Click here and under 'chrono cross' look for either 'time's scar' or 'scars of time'
Hey Barry, my kun shoulder rest is actually on my electric violin. the one i was using in my video is a cheap 5 bux fom shoulder rest that i bought off ebay. its adjustable in all the same spots as my kun one. it doesnt have as big as a wave shape though and when i first started using it, it use to fall off a fair bit.
It was much better than using rolled up clothes strapped to my violin with elastic bands though. I cant remember how much i paid for my kun one but for its price, i think the fom one is pretty good. if you're interested i'll go through my ebay history and show you the one i bought.
My kun shoulder rest has 3 horizontal adjustment spots (essentially 6 adjustments) and height is determined by winding the legs up or down
I first started playing the violin when i was about 8? I've put it down twice now and I'm picking it up for the third time (long road man!)
i dont use tape anymore but since i dont know the distances well enough and i tend to pluck the strings, viewing the fingerboard from side on is very different to viewing it from the bridge so i bought violin fretboard stickers from here. It's a little pricy, and tbh i cant really feel it when i play. I only really use them when im pizzicato-ing when holding my violin like a guitar
I was thinking the violin was backwards, then, Chinny is a lefty, now I know better. Is your webcam used for astronomical observation. Telescopes do the same thing, just top to bottom.
Great job on the song, I remember my kids playing this video game I think. The tune is familiar. Not as familiar as the songs from the "Link" series...lol
Thanks for the link Chinny, that's a haunting tune. I'll check out the site. My kids used to watch anime on TV, and I always loved the music.
I agree you're doing very well, and third time should be lucky for you, you sound awesome.
If you think you can, or you think you can't, you're probably right.
I think the reason my camera does that is because it's less weird for when video calling other people because then the mini display acts like a mirror.
Thank you! Did your kids have a play station? Or did they use an emulator on the computer because I use to play it on an emulator too.
The one with the playstation is living in Wyoming. I have one left here and he is an xbox360 guy. With headphones, thank goodness.
If your kids had the play station 1 then theres a good chance they've played chrono cross before. You're glad he uses head phones? oh how times have changed. I use to sneak onto our consoles and play without sound so that I wouldnt get caught Man i sound like a rebel. Im actually a good girl okay
