By demand, I jotted the sheet music to the riff I always play to demo violins at Fiddlershop. For anyone who is interested. It's not exact, but close enough. LOL

Wow!!

I think I might learn the double stops.  I have been working on some exercises for double stops.

Hi Pierre,

 

I just found this post...I've been meaning to ask about this. Guess I don't need to now. 🙂 Thanks!

Hey Pierre,

Here it is. I recorded on the YEV104 I purchased from you guys a few of months ago.

Double stops is one of my weakneses. A few flat notes. Need more practice, but the wife was getting mad at hearing the same thing over and over hahaha.

Thanks again for providing. It's been a great tool for a warm up.

LOL @John Bracone !!!

Yeah - I did listen earlier today, but didn't comment - and not because I had nothing to say, I honestly thought you made a darned-good-stab-at-it, especially considering the number of years seniority-of-playing Pierre has compared to the rest of us - and yes - it will get better !!!   

Trust me on this !

Keep us updated on progress !

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

Laughing So Hard Smiley

@John Bracone -

Too Late! 

Heard it, just didn't have time to post.

I doubt if I'll ever have your degree of commitment.

Just send your wife out for a bit & you'll have it nailed (lol)!

Thanks all, you're too kind.

I am still practicing it in the middle of other things. I will share it again when I feel it's good enough.

It's the double-stop section that gives trouble, well more specific, the reverse double stop into the normal ones. My fingers and my brain refuse to connect hahaha.

I forgot I had this recorded. I meant to listen to it again a couple of days ago. I find that listening again a day after recording it sounds different, thus why I deleted the other one.

 

Still a little sloppy, but I think it sounds somewhat better.

John after listing to you, I had forgotten that I had printed the riff a while back, so I dug it up and tried it all I can say is thats it's way above my pay grade by a long ways.

Good job thanks for posting,

Mark
