Is there any extraneous reason why I should get a squeak bowing C sharp on the A string? Am I pressing the string down too hard? I am having trouble keeping from gripping the neck. Do I need to bear down more on the string with the bow? This is very annoying.

Hi Beth, Just tried to order "A Rhythm A Week-Violin" by Alfred through your website. It is currently unavailable and they don't know if and when they will have more in stock. However, "Rhythm A Week for Strings: Rhythm Units in Unison Using Major and Minor Scales" by Anne C. Witt is available. Will Anne Witt's book match the audio sounds that you have loaded into the Rhythm A Week video? Thanks.

Hi Beth,

I checked out the practice rhythms for the rhythm a week project and some of them are not working...at least on my computer. 

BTW....this is "great" and just what I need.  I did purchase the book and have been looking through it the last couple of days.  It didn't look too terribly difficult until I tried playing through some of those rhythms around the middle of the book...haha.  This is going to be very helpful...and fun besides !  Thanks !  :-)

Has anyone tried Perfection Pegs?
They are a geared tuning peg that replaces a normal tension peg without damaging the pegbox or peg hole (you can replace them with your existing pegs if you want afterwards.)

Being used to playing guitars/banjos I find the tensions pegs very annoying, both to tune and the way they occasionally slip. I'm thinking of changing them over (my husband is keen on a set for his cello as well) and wondered if anyone had any experience.

A slight mishap but atleast I have a spare bow.  As I had just finished practicing I sat down to eat.  Quite literally a meatball rolled off the table and headed for the door to travel down my stairs to my apartment.  And it would have except my $800 Prell bow stoped the meatball in its tracks.  The bow saved the meatball from a worse fate but at the sacrifice of the hair.  Looks like it needs to be rehaired.  I'm telling this cautionary tale to all who will bend bend their ears to my woes.  :)))

Hello Beth,

Thank you very much for this new great rhythm project. My teacher considers playing in the right rhythm of utmost importance and priority number one. Since I have a tendency to pay attention mainly to intonation I have ordered the "A rhythm a week" book and am very much looking forward to start working with it using your lessons and audiofiles. File "2/4 or 2/2 meter 104 bps" is the only one that doesn't open. It shows text only.

Best wishes, Ingeborg

So I took the plunge and purchased a set of Obligato strings for $69. I hope I notice a difference from my Dominants. I've read a few past discussions on here now and it sounds like it will be money well-spent.

O.K. from the outset let me say this is a beginner to VL question.  The crocodile is chasing me with his ticking clock and it si time once again to renew my membership, however, I have forgotten how to do it.  I've tried to log out and fill out the spaces but it says that I can not use my user name (since I'm already using it).  Any help before the croc wants more than just my right hand?

No question here today. Just a comment as a new member. I am quite excited to have a forum of adult violin players to share and commiserate with. What I have read on the community posts so far are both stimulating and motivating! In my experience it seems that only other adults who are trying to tackle this instrument understand what it takes both mentally and emotionally.
