This is a starter violin that I put helicore strings on, it's so loud that I need the mute now. They should call them "Hell" - icore, but they way I look at it, it forces me to focus down onto the intonation of each note. Any tips/suggestions/criticisms? I want to get a lot better, so let me have it!! (Image is reverse/mirror image due to the camera)
It sounds like you're improvising, and that's super awesome. I was very impressed, also, by how you managed to sing a little while playing. I've tried that before and its hard! So cheers to you
You're sounding great for such a short time of plying. Keep it up!
Hey Mt. Fiddler great job! Keep up the singing, that'll be something that'll give you a leg up on a lot of fiddlers. Bruce Molsky is a master at this.
If you are looking for something more bluegrassy to add to your repetoire take a gander at the Nashville Bowing. At about :27 of your video you start to do some eigth note bowing, if you were to do some nashiville shuffling, you'd sound awesome! This video does a great job explaining it:
Hey Juan... nope it's a righty... the camera in my computer reverses the image. I'm thinking about left handed playing because my left index finger was caught in a woodspitter about a year ago, and I can't bend it naturally. (You can see a bit of it on the video). So I'm just figuring I can work around it, but since I'm not going to play for Carnegie Hall anytime soon, I figure I'l keep with it even with the bad finger.
THanks for the review and post!
