Hi Folks, hope you all had a great New Year's Eve. I know it's been a looooong time but here I am back in the game :D Im posting a video on one of my favorite American folk songs, Shenandoah. This is sort of an impro. Hope you guys like it. Despite the time I may be away, I never forget the place the home where my violin journey began ;)  




There's nothing better than a cold beer and the warm soothing sound of a violin.

Your music speaks to me Juan.  I am so tickled that you shared.  I will come here and listen to you often.  I am such a fan.

Much love and sunshine and violin dreams.

and I guess you like a few cold beers too.....someday we shall have that beer together.

Nice Juan.  Your sound is starting to get some really well defined personality.  Very nice take on that old song. 

A positive attitude may not solve all your problems, but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort. ~Herm Albright
