Hi!

Just out of curiosity, to see how difficult it would be, I started looking at Bach's gavotte en rondeau from BWV 1006. Surely beyond my skill level but anyway it's fun to try everything that sounds ( or should...lol ) nice.

Anyway, it didn't take long to hit first problem:



That trill on the second double stop. How trills like this should be played? To me it sounds ( in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gb3LAzCABsM ) like that the bottom note is just briefly struck and rest of the duration top note is trilled. Almost like playing quadruple stops: first bottom two and then top two.

If I try to play it as a double stop the whole duration and simultaneously trill the top note...it's difficult, sounds bad or the trill isn't even audible because it get's overrun by louder A.

BTW, any idea how difficult this piece is, say, compared to suzuki books? In which book this would fit in difficulty-wise?

Is that a new motto, Beth, or did I only just now notice it? Very fitting. I like it. A lot.

Hello Fellow Stringplayers. I have a spicatto question. Some of the music I'm playing requires a combination of very short notes and slurred notes( slur 2 followed immediately by 2 stacatto notes. ) The problem is learning to control the bow so I can alternate on the string and off the string. Any suggestions. I'm making rapid progress and am working on Vivaldi's  concerto in Am op.3 No. 6 from Suzuki Book 4. I have a fire in me to take it to the next level so this articulation thing will be an important area to develop. Thanks for any help you can offer.

I bet this guy won't be getting violinist's hickey...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NseBdxfHk5k :)

Makes me wonder...should have I taken cello instead :)
Cello techniques seem to apply quite nicely on violin too...assuming you hold it between your legs :)

I wonder whether to touch the flat part of the bow hair on the strings or the side, at an angle.

After earlier presentations today of Soo-Been Lee's Variations, and J. David's Timour the Tartar, It's almost hard for me to submit this, but I'm movin' on at my own pace and having fun.  So here's May Song:

My teacher is organizing another private class concert next Sunday. I am going to play Barlowe Caprice in the style of Copland, Bach Partita E Major Menuett I+II and Sarasate Romanza Andalusa. I have uploaded them all, plus the Bach Bourree, for your kind review. I feel mostly OK with the technical stuff, although there is room for improvement, and any tips are welcome. I am looking for musical pointers mostly. So even if you are less advanced technically, I should still appreciate your suggestions on what works and works not for you musically. Thank you for listening.

Soo-Been Lee, Wieniawski Variations on an Original Theme. Inspirational.
