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.

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?

Does anyone have suggestions for adult amateur and beginner violin competitions?

If you're just learning to read music, keep working at this. You'll love it when you get it.

Red, Red Rose

Beth. I've heard that tune before!  It was originally written by Robby Burns, the great Scottish poet of the 1700's.  Beautiful tune, well played!!
