Hi Beth, at what metronome speed is 'real vibrato achieved'??? I mean, if I do one 'ping' (I remember you calling the throw motion 'the ping' then rebound happens) per beat of the metronome, at what speed would the metronome need to be to achieve a good vibrato? 280bpm? (I have a digital and manual metronome, the digital will go up to 800!!!) I know that at the end of the day then the piece we play 'dictates' a slower or faster vibrato, but what would be an 'average ok speed'?? thank you :)

I am just starting to learn the violin. I am 39 and learning on my own. I was studying my one octave scales and came across a problem. Ab major. Can this scale, and those after it, only be played in fourth position? I would greatly appreciate any help you could offer on this problem. Thank you.

Hi, I'm Denise(Dee) and I am new to Violin Lab. I have been taking lessons for about 18 months. I have learned so much through the video lessons already. This is so much fun. I am especially interested in talking to Eileen. I currently play bass guitar in my church's praise band and I am so anxious to play the violin. We usually only get lead sheets. I would love some tips on how to improvise and contribute to the sound with the violin. Any suggestions?

I love classical music but I am also intrigued by the many different styles of music that can be drawn from the violin. Just for "the fun of it", could you show us a few easy tunes to learn in other-than-classical style? Bluegrass, celtic, etc. Perhaps you could demonstrate an easy tune played in different ways as you describe the overall approach to that style of playing. If you don't have time for this, that's fine - the whole reason I thought of it was because sometimes I just need to get my "fiddle side" expressed and don't know how to do it. :) Anyone have a website/book to recommend? Also, does it harm a learning violinist to venture across the line to that style of music if the proper form is maintained? Thanks! ~Janice
