I’m learning from Suzuki book 1 and supplementing it with fiddle tunes for fun. The Suzuki repertoire is essentially all real pieces, though some of them are kind of etude-like. When is it a good idea to start supplementing the Suzuki books with other etudes or exercises? Right now I am working on Minuet 2 as my active learning piece.
Just saw your post and I too am “fighting” with minuet 2 and using fiddle book for extra (and mental help when minuet 2) Is driving me crazy. Did you issues with the first two measures?? This one has me like kryptonite to superman. Not sure why but to get clean single strong crossing is not working for me on that. If you have something you did to help I would love to know. That are my fiddle hates me. Since both I’m guessing it’s me.
