Weeks 6-8

On a business trip to Spain and took my violin with me!  Unfortunately I had little time to practice, spending in one week on practice time, what I'd usually spend in a day.  I learned Minuet 1 by Bach and recorded it for my two- month anniversary of playing.  A few squeaks and my first feeble attempts at using vibrato a couple of times.  I'm smiling because the last take had a horrible mistake.  

I have to keep working on my 'squeaks', and using the full bow among other things.  I missed some slurs that should have been included.  Also I added staccatto to one section that doesn't call for it.  That one was some 'creative license' :)

Playing an unplugged electric.
