I'm off tonight so I have the chance to practice, this time lyrical kind of playing...

This piece is a much beloved song I tried to play from my head, initially they were all in 1st position but it's very awkward from low Gb to high F. So I mixed/added shifting on the second repeat and 3rd and 4th so on and so forth. I preferred low E on D string sliding briefly to 3rd position F on A string etc. etc, etc,

Some intonation problem here and there trying to remember the melody from deep within my hippocampus.

Hi Maria, I couldn't sleep last night, started to look around on ViolinLab and listened to the melody you posted (yes, the one that came from deep within your hippocampus :-) ) and it triggered me. I knew I recognized it but couldn't find it anymore in my memory. After a couple of hours it came back to me, I found different backing tracks and sheetmusic on the web and I couldn't help myself... I was so charmed by this one, (I like this style of music a lot) and made a recording...
Hope you like it!
