Beth, I just looked up that app you mentioned on the home page.  It is called Rhythm Sight Reading Trainer.  Looks pretty cool and is only $3!  I think improving rhythm, especially syncopation, is worth a few bucks.  Has anyone else tried this app yet?

Hi Beth, Your voice is very faint in all of the One Finger Scales Parts 1 through 3. Is there a technical problem with the camera's audio portion?

I don't mean to "hog" the forum, but i have a question and maybe a request for a video?

here is the audition piece i want to work on.  It's the hardest one.  doesn't look too bad at first, but the if i look closer its scary. 

How does one change from pizzicato to arco and back so quickly?  i guess i'm asking about the hold.  I'm not that good at pizz in the first place- hard to get the right tone. 

the next question is should it be played off the string?

Hi everyone - Is anyone else out there reading Gary Marcus' new book Guitar Zero? It is about learning an instrument as an adult, and what the science of learning teaches us about adult learners. I am finding it very interesting and useful so far.

The new videos "One Finger Scales, Parts 1, 2 and 3 (with arpeggios)" are great.

Also, is a very good way for me to get familiar with the fingerboard.

Thank you Beth.

Patricia

Hi, Great lesson! I wish I could hear it better. Does it seem to anyone but me that the audio portion of Beth's recent videos has diminished from earlier videos? I have compared the volume of Beth's latest videos with her previous videos and the sound of her latest videos is very, very low even though the volume on my laptop is to the max. Is it possible that Beth's microphone is not turned on?

In the directions on the left hand hold, it sounds like you are saying that only the thumb is touching. Does the neck not lie against the lower knuckle of the index finger? When I try this the violin wants to slide forward?

 found a note that I've never seen before.  it looks like an eighth note, but the bubble is hollow like a half note.  If the first measure is in the sheetmusic, does it sound like or is it played like the second measure, or the third?  or am I way off?
