Suggestions appreciated.  Thanks. I think I need to put note by note in finale and play along-A big challenge as well. I like to take on challenges and do get frustrated a little but once in awhile it sounds like the song maybe. Choppy rhythm. I got excited about this song and told my bible study group and they suggested I play for them. Obviously not ready yet ugh

Changing Scales
I realized recently that getting an immediate foothold with intonation as we change keys is often difficult. So I made this scale exercise as a challenge for you. There's no video, only audio.

The exercise is a series of major scales with the pattern 1234, 1234....4321, 4321.

There is always a half step between 3rd and 4th fingers. But, the tricky part is that every time you go up and down a one octave scale, you shift your hand up a half step. You slowly climb up the fingerboard starting in 1st position, ending in 3rd.

Give it a try! Your thoughts are appreciated.

Soundslice
Beth, I tested the 'Soundslice", highlihting frase after frase of this nice melody you taped, and playing with you.

I can tell that if I had had your tutorials associated with this program, my progress would have been ten times more rapid.

As the melody is very simple, I didn't use the accelerating and slowing down features. But they are very useful.

This 'Soundslice' was a very happy discovery of yours.

Please, go ahead.

Fab

Intonation Practice
Hello everybody,

I have been watching Beth's videos on intonation and practicing consistent finger placement using a pitch generator.  Can you recommend a piece of equipment to purchase and use for a beginning student?

Thanks!

Michael

Searching
Hi, Has anyone else run into searching here on VLab and getting a hit but it doesn't take you to the thread when you click on it?

Here's an example... I'm searching for Seitz no. 5 3rd mov and I get a hit:

www.violinlab.com/Community/index.php?pagePostBack=7115...
7916 Items ... This version of G maj goes so that 1st shift is on A string to D in 3rd position and 2nd shift on E string to Din 6th position. ... In Seitz no. 5, 3rd mov..... How do you play those notes that are tied with a dash over each note...such as meas. #66 and 74 ? I've run across these notations before and sort of tried to do ...

When I click on the link, it takes me to the blog roll and not to the thread- and I cannot see the thread that the search found. :(

Beth, I suggest you to organize an ultra-senior violin competition. You may consider me just registered in it.

So I just joined this morning (hello) because it seemed like this would be the most comprehensive place for information. All good, except one thing:




I've tried logging out and back in, restarting my browser, then repeating the first step, and nothing. Oddly enough, the first few videos (so far) don't seem to have this problem - they play fine.

I'm guessing it's just an oversight? I don't know. Wanted to watch the video in case it had anything resembling another syllabus of sorts, or just tips on how to best make use of the site.

In any case, thanks!
