Not bad for early in your playing career.
You inspired me to work on this again, it has been in my practice routine off and on since I started and is still one of my favorites. It is a beautiful piece and might try to get a recording one of these days.
Look forward to seeing an updated version after you get some more practice with the slurs, they do really help make this piece.
A hoopy frood always knows where his towel is!
I can not believe you did that. Congrats and good job. I was so happy to see this song on the forum.
I love the song.... I have been working on it for several months..not as I should...but as Cdennyb did, I learned it and have spent months capturing (well trying..) to get the whole nuance.
GREAAAAAT JOB... congrats.
I had a "weird" day.. feeling yuck.. and you just put the happy in the "Don't worry be Happy."
Vibrato Desperato.... Desperately seeking vibrato
Very nice! One other piece of advice: as cdennyb pointed out, position is everything. In addition to elevating the violin's scroll end (should be about parallel to the floor) and relaxing your neck (try to have it so the violin feels like it's resting on your shoulder, not being gripped), you should try to straighten your left wrist so that the palm isn't elevated and touching, or almost touching, the neck. You handle this well for the most part, and I'm pretty sure straightening out your posture will make maintaining a relaxed wrist a lot easier.
