@coolpinkone Thanks, Toni! 

I'm looking forward to the recital :)  Even if I screw up, the experience should be fun :) My teacher and I decided that I might inspire some more adults to take lessons or do the recital next time :)

I did a new video today... I didn't plan to do one before the 5 month mark, but I was making a video to send to my fiddle playing aunt in Michigan that I don't get to see often, so decided to use what I have of my latest homework tunes.

I'm not where i want to be with either tune, Jackie Tar got set back from all my recital practice, but Im getting better at it.

madbill Thanks, Bill! I love this tune. It's just fun and bouncy. Just gotta work out the squeaks that sneak in there, lol.

LOL - aye - I know exactly what you mean about the 'squeaks' LOL!  It can be a "finger too soon" on a string, or "too late-drawn-off", or "something slurred that might have been better played separately", or a "string-cross-over" that didn't quite work-out, or - well like 100 other things known only to the advocates of the devil's own instrument... ! LOL - I just love it.....   even when I get it wrong  - which I usually do ! 

( I regard it as a continual battle with the forces of evil... hahahaha )

Seriously - you're doing fine, great progress - just keep doing what you do !  

^5s Mandy !

lol :) I know some of it is not holding fingers high enough when doing a lot of string crossings, and my teacher told me it's from an un-confident bowing hand.  I guess I need to build its confidence, cheer it on and the like, lol.cheerleaderviolin-studentcheerleader

Ok, today is my 5 month Fiddle-versary, lol.

Because I'm a nerd and finally saw the new Star Wars movie today, I did a short snippet of the theme song, and then a fiddle song:

 

 

There, should be no more need for a video until my 6 month Fiddle-versary (man, the time is flying!!!!)

admin Thanks! I cringe at my squeaks, and mistakes, but oh well it was fun, lol.

And if you are a Star Wars fan, you will love the new movie. My brother and I agree that watching this one was like watching the real Star Wars again. It felt like an authentic continuation of the original movies, to us. :)

Almost feel like I should re-watch some of the old ones first. It's been so long.

I usually end up watching them every year or so, but didn't get a chance before I went to the movie, so I'm spending the long weekend rewatching them, lol.

By the time I re-watch them, the movie will be available on DVD, or iTunes. :)

Congrats on your five month. :)

Your videos are fun and you are doing great for five months!!!  woo hooo.

I confess I only have seen the first and original Star Wars back in the 70's? or whenever and never have seen any others.  So I have catching up to do.  The sound track was a huge hit and they played it a lot on top 40 radio back in the day, I know we used it for dance shows and cheerleading and football games, so it is super familiar.. awesome song.

Cheers and happy playing.
