Share Music - Listen Audio -

Seeing if this will work, had pj's on....so just tried audio - although prob would have made for funny one, dog on chair begging me to stop!

Anyways was trying to play along and see how many notes I could match, hopefully more than I missed, and trying to get some timing going - I thought playing along would keep me steady, but I didn't know how to turn the backing song down lower and still hear it to play along - sounds a bit weird like Im playing in the wind. I think I missed several notes every time...but thought Id be brave and put it up so maybe someone would be able to tell me what and how to improve.

The lovers' waltz is a beautiful song, you did good on it.

I think that you did a great job.  It was lovely!  How long have you been playing?

Thanks guys - I was obsessed for almost 1 whole year, playing at least 1 hour a night for 4-5 nights, Loved it!.... but then I put it down for 3 years, had family stuff going on, and I had some joint things going on - my hands were a bit of a mess for a while. 

Coming back and just relearning stuff. I'm back working through fiddlerman etudes and bowing then onto 3rd position, I hope! Theres a couple notes I think I miss each time, and it seems to sound a bit better on the recording than I thought it sounded.....(maybe the backing song is helping) but I pretty much feel confident in my first position.

I love playing along to stuff as I didn't learn any music growing up and I think I have bad timing issues.

Onward to practice!

Welcome to the forum Mimi.

If you upload a video instead of audio we can give you a video sharing badge. :)
Thanks for sharing and congratulations on the hard work!!!

Glad you are getting back into playing after the 3 year pause. It's funner the second time around isn't it?

Very nicely done.  I enjoyed listening to it.
