My 2020 Goal
I am working on my favorite Bach Sonata, the Partita in d minor. My goal is to be able to play all movements by the end of my year here on violinlab.com.  I believe I have corrected and fixed many issues I came here with, but I still have a long way to go before I conquer this Bach Partita. I will not give up. I may never be satisfied with my performance of this Bach Partita but it's fun to chase the beast even if you never capture it.

Jesu, Joy of Manīs Desiring by Bach (1685 - 1750)

Recording something is soooo revealing.

This clearly needs some more work done on "clean" playing and "keeping" sounding point.

I have 2 more weeks to practice this before my christmas recital on Friday the 20th of December.

Comments and suggestions welcome!!!!

Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel
So I've been working on bow stroke lengths based on the music and tempo. I'm supposed to play this in public this weekend with a pianist.
Can you tell me if I'm moving the bow up far enough on the long strokes or if my shorter strokes are ok. Thanks

One year on violin lab!
So... just renewed my violin lab membership and thought I should make myself post a video. I have spent the last couple of days downloading lots of christmas songs - I'm going to have a break from the curriculum until after xmas and just 'have a go' at some of them. I decided to just play/ record one with all the mistakes to stop me being too precious so this is a warts and all first take. I have a very long list of things I can see need working on - but any additional input happily received. 
The last year has flown by, even though my progress seems very slow to me when I look back at this time last year I can see I have actually improved a lot so I am feeling very positive for the next 12 months. Big thanks to Beth of course but also to everyone on the forum. I don't post a lot but I do learn a lot - coffee and violin lab forum first stop every morning :)

Inability to play well while videoing
I don't know why it is but as soon as I put on the camera I play so much worse than when I'm not on it. Does anyone have any insight into why this may be and ideas for how to overcome it. I feel like I can often play Ode to Joy quite nicely without the camera and I wanted to post the improvement but it fails every time. Just keep at it maybe?
