So, I found Happy Birthday to be a little more difficult than Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. XD
But still fun to try playing it.

I had a youtube video on loop that had the finger positions scroll down the screen. I got mixed up quite a few times, but I like this style of trying to learn some of the easier stuff.

(oh, and you might have to turn your volume up a bit. I had my mute on and my phone in a weird place to be able to stand up, sort of)

Great job.
Straighten out your left wrist and use more elbow when you bow. :)
Look forward to your next video.
BTW, I gave you critique even though you didn't ask for it. If it doesn't bother you to get critique post a video on Critique Corner for another badge. thumbs-up

Thanks! Doesn't bother me at all. I appreciate any feedback since I don't plan on stopping at Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and Happy Birthday. ;-)
