I thought I would share some of my practice bits learning from FM tutorial videos.
Here is a quick improvisation, in key of Em, a bit of spicato, staccato practice with a bit of tango rhythm.
And here is another bit of improvisation, in key of Em. The first few notes are from a Breton dance I posted a while back. A bit of marcato and finger vibrato practice.
Lot of mistakes for sure. Will work on them some more.
Absolutely lovely. I love your facial expression at the end of the first....was a smile about to happen?? 🙂 Good job. You know I am a fan of these Improvs..I call them "
"Ratvn's Song." I hope to see them in print someday.
Thank you. Congratulations on your progress and good luck with all you have on you plate to learn this coming year. Thank you for your friendship and all your help too.
Vibrato Desperato.... Desperately seeking vibrato
Great job posting some of that. Keep working on it and eventually it'll turn into a song!!
Improvising is one of those rewarding yet frustrating activities. I wish I was more diligent about learning to improvise more systematically.
Thank you for your kind words and encouragement, @Schaick, @Fiddlestix Ken, @coolpinkone Toni, @Mad_Wed Naska, @Fiddlerman Pierre, @gwscheer, @fiddlinsteudel, and @wookieman.
Yes, you're right, wookie that it's the first time that violin was on this forum. It's a Stainer, Hungarian made, est. 1800's. I did some setup for it, tailpiece, bridge, strings, and quite a few soundpost tweaking.
