Beth, I made your bowing jig and was met with unexpected success. Not only did I stretch those outside arm and hand muscles but I was also able to concentrate on finger movements of the right hand. I also discovered that I was afflicted with the dreaded "death grip" syndrome which disappeared when using the bowing jig. I tweaked your jig-in that I cut the bowing tube down to 3 inches inorder to obtain mimic more of the full bow stroke. Thanks for the tip.

I just switched from the hard rectangular rosin to the round cake form. Perhaps it is my imagination but I'm sure the strings sound clear. Perhaps because the round rosin is a little softer and therefore it applies more evenly on the horsehair. In the end it does not matter I know what I'll be buying from now on.

I love the idea about the "drones" It may help me.....I have very little hearing left in my right ear and it's very hard for me to tune to another instrument or source because I don't hear the "source" very well, I just hear a lot of "me". Nobody wants to sit and "drone" for me long enough for me to "get" the note and I only have an "A" drone on my metronome. Usually I ask my worship leader to listen to my A for me and let me know where it's at, then I tune the rest. Anyway ! Looking forward to this Beth !! Another thing, I love the little theory blurbs I get from watching your videos. There was another vid you posted where you were explaining intervals and tuning. I always perk up when I hear theory blurbs ! :-)

Dear Beth, The video portion of "Simple Gifts" is blank. Only the audio is coming through. Also the sheet music is not visible. I love this piece so I am hopeful that it is a temporary problem that can be resolved easily. Thank you. Elizabeth

What fun is !!! I'm working on this technique as it's so much fun to do this and I love the effect ! Tremolo is also one of my favorites.... I recently posted a vid of Itzhak Perlman playing Bazzini's "Dance of the Goblins (I think that's what it was)... on my facebook page and in the vid Perlman is obviously enjoying himself as he plays this. The coolest part is when he's doing pizzicato as he's spiccatoing ! What an amazing instrument and I'm always fascinated to watch and listen to those who've mastered it sharing their skills with the rest of us. Thank you Beth for your inspiring and helpful vids ! I'll have to see what I can do with this !

Just discovered Dr. Colleen McCullough's video Part:9 Invaluable Lesson in Recording Yourself. Thanks Beth for including the video, it just answered my last posting.

I listened to: Dr. Paula Bird, part 1: Awareness of Tone 1 with interest. Especially when, at the beginning of the tutorial when she describes what the violinist hears compared to the audience. I'm wondering if setting up a tape recorder (remember those) and after practicing rewind and press replay. What do you think?

I can't believe what fun I'm having learning something new! Even though I've just completed my first week of practicing (you just have to love newbies) each time I pick up my violin there is something else to explore. I have found that the violin has an immediate response on G,D, and A strings. Which means I've lucked out on making the base bar. The E string not so much. I'll have to research this-perhaps its nothing more than adjusting the sound post. Wish me luck.

Something tells me I might want to spend a buck and buy a stick rather than using my bow?
