Heres a couple with the amoooos.  I chuckled thinking about @cid talking about the neighbors cow the other night...there's times I hear the cow except it's swallowed a bee and its stuck in its nasal cavity.  All in all I like so far.  Maybe too muted?  Not sure.  

Heres tell her I am and the Banshee reel.  I lost it on the Banshee..you know how it goes.

Here's a tune called Pony Boy written by Mark Simos.  Or at least my improv of it.  Ive had some guidence in class.  One of the students figured it out and shared.  I deviated some.

Here's it is played live.  Think Mark Simos is on the right.  Bruce Molsky is off camera somewhere.  Think these are Berkley students by the video description.

Nice job. You play the violin really nice. I like the sound of your strings, too.

Also, I noticed the gray walls and white trim. Over the past two years we have been painting all of our rooms a pure light gray and have white molding and ceiling. Just have our room left. 

Anyway, thanks for the videos. Enjoyed hearing them. 

They call me, “Mellow Cello”

Thank you @cid.  Yeah this is one of my sons rooms thats moved out now.  Claimed it as the cave.  Still have the bed setup for him for visits.  We are doing painting and such as time goes by.  My daughters old room is in the middle of painting..carpet and stuff.  It never ends.

Good work and good progress @GregW - thanks for sharing !   Nice tune that by the way - (meaning Pony Boy - new one to me)

I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh - guntohead.JPG

Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)

Thanks @Billyg  I like it too.  Has an old west kinda feel.  I'm working hard on the B part where they play the B C# D real quick and also drone on the D string.  It sounds awesome when done right.  I've got to work on my positioning.  You can see in the video I'm actually bending the G string so my hand isn't hitting right.  I left out all the double stops.  Some aren't too bad like 4th finger on A while playing e.  I'm getting that meh...bout half the time.

Thanks Again.
