No idea if I have the timing correct,I have to hear a tune before I can play it with the right timing , I struggle with reading music , if I am out point me in the right direction.

I don’t know if you have it correct but I like that tune. I like the sound of that violin, too. 

Maybe someone can put up a “click track” for you, based in the speed you are playing, if the timing is off. 

Thanks for sharing.

@stringy -

Are you playing this while reading the sheet music?

no Emily I have memorised it, I looked at other versions and tried them but they sounded completely different, I prefer the sound of this one,, the music on the stand is a book of etudes.

Great job, I like it. :)

Reading music gets better with time, but there are always some inflections and things that don't always come across.
