    I enjoyed this very much. I can visualize people waltzing to it. I am working on this tune too.

    Thanks for the comments. Yes! Use the whole bow. As I was told on another post, I paid for the whole bow.

    I also really like your tone. I would have liked to have seen a little more of your arm so that I could see what you are doing with your wrist when bowing. Perhaps stepping back just a wee bit from the camera to get that. Nice going though. Well done 🙂

    I wish I could Jewel, but my little 10′ X 10′ bed/office/media/library/practice room with the camera set up high and against the wall is as good as it gets. I’m already standing against the bed and I don’t think I could get by moving my stuff into the hallway. Trust me when I say that I could pass the “quarter test” with my right hand.

    I guess I could leave my head out of the next video. Then you could see more of my bow hand.

    Very nice, Will. You have given me something to aim for. That is what I would like to sound like when I play. Nice, relaxed, soothing. I know I am only a beginner, but seeing and hearing posts like this encourage me. Don’t stop posting!! You are helping this newbie fall in love with the violin!!

    Each player/violin combination has a different sound. That is just my “voice”, if you will. It helps if you have a good violin like the ones Michael sells and work toward your own particular voice. I listen to a lot of CDs with different violinists playing the same piece. Each one is different, i.e., unique to the player and their violin.

    It does help to have a good violin and learn good technique.

    So… keep practicing and find your voice.
