CRITIQUE TIME
Hello One and All,

Critique time: for Open String Duets Group 1: Number 1 
Please have a listen and leave a critique.  I have tried to incorporate the ten areas that Beth would like us to work on, of course, please be very critical since this is the only way to improve is to point out the areas for improvement.  Is the bow absolutely straight?  Rhythm bang on?  String crossings sloppy?  Articulation fuzzy?  Volume taper off at the end of the bow stroke?  You get the idea.  So bring out your red pencils and have to!  Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.  :)))

May The Beat Be With You,

Ray

Fabiano, I tried to better articulate. Let me know if this is a good pace for my speaking.

Returning to the violin
Greetings again to Beth and Violin Lab. I picked up the violin today after a long hiatus, and was surprised to find that I had not forgotten everything I learned. My technique seems about the same level (not really "good" but at least "no worse"). So I hope to get back into playing. I really miss the church band. I met a wonderful lady, Maria, who is the love of my life. Like me, she is widowed, and we will be married very soon and then we are moving to our new home in Florida.  We have been traveling to the Caribbean and South America for the past year and I am working on learning Spanish, which is Maria's primary language (she was born in Jamaica with dual British/U.S. citizenship and raised in Puerto Rico). I hope to get involved with a music group in the Sarasota/St.Petersburg area in Florida and post a video here soon.  --EJ

I like Bethís teaching on writing the Bowing above the notes up or down and then I find I change again. Found it very insightful and helpful in figuring out what I like and donít like. I think I stop too much.

Intonia
Has anyone tried that icon, on Intonia, labelled: tUning?  It sends the sensitivity of whether your intonation into hyper drive.  Try it out just for 'fun'.  :)))

Chords song I can Only Imagine
I am trying to use Bethís detailed method on this song. I am also assigned an assignment by my teacher to put chords -identify them in pieces. I am confused on that wondering if I am supposed to find chords in the piece or suppose to pick each note and define what chord it belongs to-no clue on latter. And I guess my question is it says in this song Gmaj9 above a d note and Dmaj9 above another note and Asus and Gsus2 d and a and I am assuming these are chords?  But the gsus2 above a d three on a string. Is this easily explained or do I need to really study this. I memorized my major scales and I have a list of major chords that go with those scales. Thank you. Hope I make some sense. Music theory improved but challenged

How do you play your G string?  The reason I am asking is because mine usually sounds gravelly.  There is, I feel, a disruption in the music (besides all the other reasons)  when ever I play on the G string.  Do I need to use less pressure?  Contact point?  Both?  If you experienced this how did you solve it?  Thanks for any thoughts.
