    Just trying to play some music after fixing the bridge of my new violin.

    That really good! You seem to have great posture, good technique and great control of the bow. I even notice that you show expression with your body and in your face. It looks to me like you’re doing pretty good. The only thing you might want to work on is getting a more vibrant tone quality. To do this practice making your right arm and wrist just a little more relaxed. I saw a video here on Violin Tutor pro that showed how to do this in the air without touching the violin. Seriously, though, you show a lot of talent and promise!

    Were you using an electric violin? If so, plug it into an amp! It will have a fuller sound. Great job!

    Glad to see and hear your fixed bridge. You have good bow technique – you’re going to be a great player! Keep on playing.

    I love this tune. I’ve played it for Robbie Burns night dinners in the past. I’d love to hear your axe plugged into an amplifier!

    Very nice! I am glad to see you playing a Scottish Tune! It sounds like you have great intonation and good connection with the bow into the string. The tone sounded a little funny just because it is an electric violin and not plugged into an amp. I think on an acoustic violin, you would be getting a very strong tone! One suggestion for your bow hand is to try to keep your pinky curved. That will give you more control over your bow. As this is a Scottish tune, you can make it more Scottish sounding by adding some embellishments with your left hand. If you haven’t learned embellishments, you can find me here for lessons. Another good way to learn some embellishments is by listening to great Scottish Fiddlers on Spotify or Youtube. Look up fiddlers like Bonnie Rideout, Colyn Fischer, Melinda Crawford, or Allisdair Fraiser. They are all very good!
