Journey of a Fiddler - Day 23

Hello Everyone! I've been practicing Mary Had A Little Lamb daily. Noticed that my notes do not really sound clear. I think I need to press down on the strings harder, and make sure I'm bowing properly.

I wonder if there's a proper way to press down on the strings.

Journey of a Fiddler - Day 19

Hi everyone! I'm practicing Mary Had A Little Lamb today. 


I think I have memorized the notes, but the notes did not sound clear.  I noticed the strings are kinda screechy when I bow... Do you think its because I'm not pressing down on them hard enough?

Also, my fingers  hurt if I press on the strings really hard... but if I don't do that, there's a screeching sound, and the note doesn't sound clear.

Journey of a Fiddler - Day 16

Hi everyone! 

I've been working on my Twinkle Twinkle tune for awhile now... Especially on the part on not slurring 2 strings at once.

Been putting all I've learnt together into this... I personally feel I've improved since last week, but still have more room for improvement!

And my shoulder keeps moving... :(

Journey of a Fiddler - Day 12 (D & A Twinkle Twinkle)

Today I'm starting on Twinkle Twinkle with strings D & A! I feel its tougher than the A & E one because both strings have chords beside, and I had to be conscious of not hitting either of those.

Anyway, I noticed that the 'optical illusion' is making my bow in D crooked... I probably need to work on that.

Please comment & like the video!

Journey of a Fiddler - Day 10 (String Crossing)

Hi everyone! I'm still practicing string crossing! Wow this part is difficult - I'm still working on getting the timing just right so I won't bow both strings at once!

I see a slight improvement though! ^^
