    Hi everybody! This is my first fiddle tune. Until now I had only played classical pieces and I really liked it. But so, for the first time I am playing a fiddle tune and I really love it. I’ll sure be fiddling more in the future!! 🙂
    Please let me know what you think. I appreciate all feedback! Oh yes, I’ve started with vibrato a week ago and in the video you can see a first attempt to do vibrato on some notes…

    You did well. I play in my family’s band and we perform this song a lot I love it. I play the violin too in this song you should check out the band Orthodox Celts on you tube who also do the song. The video is great.

    Awesome job! I love the work you have done! I love the video editing too! 😀 Vibrato is hard, and it looks like you are heading in the right direction with it! If I were to suggest anything to work on, I would have you try to make straighter bows (which is one of the hardest things to do in my opinion!). When nearing the frog of the bow, keep your right elbow back so it doesn’t push the frog towards the fingerboard. not only will this straighten your bow, but you will find that you have more control and even a better sound! If you would like additional help, you can find me here:

    Very nice! You are getting a solid tone already so if you practice Suni’s suggestions for your bow arm, this will get even better! I would recommend practicing in the mirror and looking to see if your bow is lined up with the f holes and going straight. A tip for your left hand, try to keep all of your fingers very tall and bent. If you can keep your left hand pinky bent and on its tip, it will be all the more accurate!

    Great job! I am a big fan of playing classical and fiddling! 🙂
