    Hi everybody, here I’m playing an other fiddle tune. It’s fast! At least for me it’s the fastest I have played so far 🙂 hope you like it!

    Ol’ Joe Clark
    He had a house
    Twas 15 stories high
    And every story in that house
    Was filled with chicken pie…

    I like that ol’ tune..

    Very nicely done. And it sure is fun playing with the accompaniment track.

    You had a bit of a problem on the intonation of your second finger at times usually with string crossings. Go from all your fingers to your 2nd finger with string crossings and you will build muscle memory. Better yet… do all combinations of string crossings with all the combinations of fingers.

    Nice one. Very much improvement. Keep improving and keep practicing, especially scales/etudes.

    Thanks so much for your comments! Thanks Will for your tip. I’ll practice my 2nd finger with string crossings. It’s really good you told me. I did know it but it seems I always ignore it or at least don’t pay too much attention to it… But now I’m going to do that 🙂

    I like the tune. Have heard it many times but have not learned it. Very nice with the piano track. Nice work. Nice to listen to 🙂

    Nice and bouncy! You were right in there with the piano and your intonation was really good.

    Very nice job, Mariko! You are making a lot of improvement! With your second finger in this piece, aim for it to be right next to the first finger on the E string. Then on the A string make sure your 2nd finger is high. It is a tricky piece because your 2 has to jump between low and high, so make sure you are really clear about which string it needs to be low and which string it needs to be high. It That will help with that intonation problem. One more comment I have is that I think you will have a little more control over your bow if you rest your pointer finger a little closer to the tip of the finger. In between your first and second knuckle should give you a little more solid grip. It looks like the bow was resting more around your 2nd and 4th knuckles. Hopefully that makes sense. You can always find me on the community page or here if you need more help. 🙂
