Hi everyone,

I'm a new and excited member to Violin Lab.  I hope to be able to record myself soon so that I can get some constructive feedback.  For now, I have a question that is somewhat unrelated to playing. I am playing at an outdoor wedding tomorrow. At the rehearsal today, I had my music in a plastic sheets in a binder. This prevented the music from flying everywhere, but the wind was still turning the pages everywhere. I've thought about using those bag clips you use on chips to clip the music to the binder, but thinking I won't have time to re-clip in between some of the songs.  Any advice?  Also, any quick tips on ways to battle performance anxiety?  Thank you!

I sent Beth an old Irish tune in 3 part harmony that I thought might be fun for folks at the workshop to fiddle around with during the downtime (if there will be any..haha)...or even a lesson in keeping rhythm/timing when playing with others.

She posted it in the Member's page in the resource section.  It's called Wild Rose of the Mountain.  A very pretty little tune that I hope I'll be able to sit in and play along with you guys in July !   ;-)

Red, Red Rose Sheet Music second violin duet part

Thank you so much Beth!  I just saw that you added the music for this and I am so excited to try it with my daughter!  And the audio example is just so incredibly beautiful I could cry!

Hello :)

I am working on whole bow strokes down to the frog and I am finding that on the E string my thumb knuckle at the hand keeps bumping the side of the violin and bouncing the bow ...if I go as close to the frog as demonstrated in the videos...am I doing something wrong or how can I improve that?

This is a song that I think this community will love. It is a beautiful piece of music.
thought I would make my first suggestion =]

Heimholtz motion of a violin string
It's not at all the way I visualized a string vibrating.

Hi

I'm new here and really just getting started.

I've been playing the twinkles.. slowly.. without marking my fingerboard. (I can't keep up with you in the performance video yet, Beth.) The reason I've been playing without marking the board is that I'm short and short armed and I ended up purchasing a 7/8 size violin (which is much more comfortable for me than the 4/4 that I was trying to play). But.. I'm not sure if the spacing of the tape should be spaced differently. If the note I play is horribly off I like to think that I can hear it. But, I suspect that I can't hear it if it's only a little of pitch and would like for it to be right-on. Thoughts?

Thanks,

Naomi Anderegg

Got a question regarding the metal practice mutes sold on Amazon. Are they prone to damage a violin's bridge or what? I have need of some sort of mute, as I am often inspired to practice late at night when everyone else is asleep but I have heard that only the metal mutes are capable of sufficiently reducing the sound so as not to bother others in adjacent rooms.

Robyn,

Do you have facebook ?   If you do could you get in touch with me ?   I have a link to my page on my members "about me" blurb  (yes, it IS all about me isn't it...haha)  in the "current members" tab list.
