@@Mark thank you sir. I'm now working in octaves and slides between E & F \ B & C in order to seamlessly shift to the locations I want to play on the fingerboard. And also to work on right hand wrist flexibility, serval years ago a broke my right hand and with the bow I feel incompent ; so , I will continue to rehabilitate my wrist mobility with fuller and flappier bow strokes.

How do you feel about the humming? I can't seem to stop but I have made it much quieter than it was.

I deleted the older videos because I did not enjoy enough of the music. I do in fact enjoy this video. However my standards are high and the effort I put into making this video was minimum. I'm not even lined up properly on the screen and did not use audio equipment. I created this video in a rush to create a tiny bit of performance media for you all and someone else who ... Never mind that.

 

ill make a new video hopefully next week because I learned something today. Well , I experimented today with a new way to play the music sorted in my head ; I need to record it to review it for myself.

interesting stuff. keep at it! every once in a while if I'm playing something slow and melodic an involuntary humm will escape, so I know where that's coming from.

Guys & gals I am really beginning to get this violin thing. My music is coming together and since last week I've incorporated a new refinement which makes the music understandable. Whatcha think?
