ok.. so finally I shot a video. Or actually, a covered up video ;)

This is not so much about me playing, about my technique or anything, which is why I left myself out and covered the cam with the sheetmusic wink.

Also, I hear mistakes myself, I make some mistakes on intonation, it's probably rushed every now and then and my "hey, I'm trying a vibrato to  -what the heck" is not exactly spot on. But that's not so much why I  posted.

And, it's recorded just on my Mac-mic, so it's not entirely the best quality and doesn't to complete justice to the violin, but it could have been worse I suppose.



That said, this is a soundbit of an idea what My Precious sounds like *lol*

Oh and the music by the way is a part from the Braveheart Theme. (I do play the whole part, which involves the E-string a lot more. I can do that if someone wants to hear, but for now I left it out.)



it would be helpful to include the link clap

That sounded really nice. It was SWEET!! > wish I could of seen the player of the tune. > Yeah , its not about the player, it is about the sound but there is something special when the player of the instrument is there.

Your Precious sounds good, Marissieviolissie. 

Don't worry about video, or let yourself feel pressured or pushed to include video.  If and when you are ready, not before.  The sound was the point of your post, anyway.

Thanks for the nice words :)
I might do a 'real video' again some day, but I decided not to this time.  


Maybe when I get my books with Irish and Swedish songs, looking forward to playing those songs! Ordered them a while ago and I know they've been sent, so I'm getting more and more impatient when my mailbox only has some bills for me drummer 

Patience, patience... cool


And by the way, ignore my typos in my first post...facepalm
