Gosh, I don't think it's been close to two weeks since you got your first sounds out of it. Not a week ago we were telling you on chat how to rosin your bow, unless I am wrong.
Your G string is tuned a half-step low.
You have finger tapes but don't seem to be looking at them, ha ha. But your intonation is good. Better to use your ear, as you seem to be doing. So that part is very good.
I would say that the biggest problem in front of you is your hold. As I understand things, you basically can't expect to do vibrato or play outside of first position unless you can hold the violin with no hands. So I would recommend attacking that problem right away and perhaps ongoingly by trying different chin rests and/or shoulder rests/pads etc..
I think you are off to a good start.
Thanks everyone for your comments so far. It is much appreciated.
@RosinedUp - I bought the "dont fret" sticker thinking I would need it in knowing where my notes are, it was a waste of my four dollars. Yes, i'm using my ear to tune from the very beginning. I do need to get a better shoulder rest. The chin rest isn't too terrible its underneath that i need some better cushioning. My violin is out of tune because of the pegs not staying in place. I need to work on it. (never have time) and I'm trying to save my bucks for better strings. All in due time right?
