Almost two months after getting my first viola in over 58 years, I'm sharing a new video of the tune Raglan Road (a variation of Dawning of the Day). It's not perfect, with several mistakes, but does show what I'm up to. This was also posted in my blog, so if you saw it there, no need to torture yourself further! lol

@JohnG

Great job!  Your intonation is spot on, & your progress in 2 months is so good!  gold_star

I like this piece--I really like the youtube duet version you posted in the other thread.

This sounded great @JohnG but I instantly recognized it as Ragland Road...not sure about this Lagland road tune but sounds just like the other!  laugh  Enjoyed listening and good to watch and read about your progress!

@GregW - You are correct about the name, my error. I can't change the title of the thread, but added an edit to note correction in first post. Thanks for that and the compliment!
