    I uploaded a video so that I can get some pointers. I know I messed it up a bit but I’m just looking for some advice 🙂 don’t be too harsh on me now.

    What a great beginning! You should relax and enjoy! Are you using any fingerboard guides? You may want to try it for a little while on the d string. Your intonation on the a string and e string was better… Try also to relax your right shoulder and not hold the bowing arm so high. There are some really helpful videos on bowing that you can watch on this site. I applaud you for posting! Keep up the good work!

    For only 30 days you did quite well on your own. One thing I noticed is your left hand/wrist. Try to play with your wrist a bit straighter, almost a straight line from your forearm through your hand, rather than your hand being bent backwards at the wrist. That way your knuckles will be up and your hand high, and using the “base knuckle” (where your finger meets the hand) to place your finger on the string. Think about “carpal tunnel syndrome”. It may take you a little out of tune until you get used to that.

    Keep it up! Well done! Now, go tell your sister what I said and give ‘er the raspberry!

    Do you have a music stand? Was that memorized?

    Oh am I moving my hand too far back on the way down? ^^; I’ll try to be more aware of it next time around 🙂 thank you. No I don’t have a stand (I wish I do XD) and if you mean the song then yes it was memorized 🙂
