pink-violin-girlI practiced this song yesterday Dec 2, 2019. The music score is from Fiddlerman.com.  I am truly appreciative to Fiddlerman's posting of this music score, which has tutorial notations of how to do the bow strokes! thanks_much_smiley_gif

In this piece, I attempted to do some basic "vibrato" (did I get the name correctly for this bowing technique?).  I never officially learned it with any teacher.  I simply watched people do it and really liked it. So in this piece, I tried to imitate it because it makes the notes sound really nice!

Enjoy my first time going Over the Rainbow !  🙂

Sorry for a technical cliche.  Last recording was out of focus and had some noises. So, I deleted it.

I practiced more, and played the song again this morning before I went out to work.  Here is the link for newer Over the Rainbow (12/04/19).  This time the recording sounds a whole lot better.
