Working on learning scales. Almost got all the intonation right but still needs some work 🙂

Sounds really good!

Can you tell me why you are using that particular bowing to play scales?

Generally, I use the full bow because I am playing long, slow notes when I am practicing scales.

Hey Chris! Sounding good.  One thing my instructor is always reminding me of is say coming down from that open e and going to D (3rd)  plop down all your fingers..keeping the 2 finger (C) low whith index next to it ( key of G).  Itll help instead of doing individiual fingering.  Its hard to remember and I should try harder myself.  Didnt know if you have someone telling you that in practice or not.

  Also as you move across strings from G to high e we will tend to sink the index finger playing a little flat.  Reach higher than you may think.  Just something from one beginner to another that I have trouble with.  Thought Id share..maybe might help. cheerscongrats on video!

No particular reason. I was trying out some new camera equipment with a GoPro camera to try and capture my left had motion for my instructor. That experiment did not work well and it was distracting me from playing longer slower bow strokes.
