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!!

Buried in one of my other recent posts, a few of us were talking about the community orchestra's that we play in (or would like to one day!)  And I thought it might be nice to pull those out in a separate thread.

So, if you are a member of a beginner string group / orchestra / ensemble etc, and by way of inspiration for us all, would you share the website address and location it serves?  There may be other Violin Lab members in those areas who are not aware of the opportunities on their doorstep!

To get things going, here are two I know of in the UK:

https://www.ellso.org/  - East London Late Starters Orchestra (I think JoJo used to go here?)
https://www.ylss.org/ - Yorkshire Late Starters String (rehearses in Leeds)

I just got my superstudies book 1. The last line one #1 last 2 notes is a D note. I noticed in the video you use 4th finger down the neck, I alittle confused how to play this as a harmonic. Are you playing 3rd finger D and 4th finger as well. Thanks

Can anyone help me remember:  I responded to a recent post with a "That will make a great next tutorial!"  I can't remember what it was in reference to, nor can find the post where I typed it.  Aahrg, and embarrassing.

Calling on all fingering savants out there:
I'm probing the score for the Accolay Concerto in A minor (as a longer term goal, my M-I-L would perish if I tried to play it now)

Anyway I'm listening to Perlman version and looking at the overall structure and detail of the first few phrases of the solo. I know I shouldn't be looking at this level of detail at this point, but the fingerings (as suggested by anon person) caught my attention and has me a bit baffled as this is not the way I would have intuitively approached it. I went back to IMSLP the source of the first score and looked at another source and not only were there fingering variances (that's to be expected) but the dynamics in those phrases were at complete odds with one another. Hmmm? BTW, I am pretty certain Perlman is using an open A & E on that first ascending A minor arpeggio.

So, my question as a junior player is: should I follow my intuition with respect to fingering or follow someone else's path?
As a general guideline, I let the phrasing dictate the fingering.

The first few bars from 2 different files at IMSLP...
