Activity


So I'm just approaching a classical piece for the first time here, literally filmed my first attempt at decoding sheet music without additional help such tabs or tutorials, except for my color system : Natural notes on the Violin .GIF by olq-plo

This is also my first time playing along piano accompaniment and my first time playing without stickers for finger positions, lot of first times today.



Also did a retake on yesterday's video since I couldn't find a way to quickly edit the resolution and make the image less squished.

I made my scheme a video for youtube 


Anyone knows a good forum that has a nice community for the violin or maybe that family of instruments in general ?

I already subscribed to one but didn't their posting system at all, mods have to approve of your thread for anyone to see it and it takes hours, and it was just kinda meh and I think a bit buggy, although the people seemed nice. 
It's harder than it seems, I know if I was looking at someone doing it I'd be like, why can't you just... not hit the wrong string ?? But it's kinda tricky when switching between strings fast. I practiced this for hours, I thought it was a good exercise for switching between strings since it changes many times in the middle and really fast, then I practiced it gradually faster for fun. 


43 sec video

Sorry for the poor quality, my phone died so I used my laptop this time (not good for recording) plus I didn't notice it was getting dark as I was so focused on practicing for hours.
Since finding notes turned out to be easy on violin, that's how I practice lately instead of just repeating the same things, I think of some melody I like, find the notes (it's an exercise in itself so I didn't even look up tabs) and just practice that melody.

This one of the many things I practiced playing by ear the last couple of days. 



23 sec video
Now I just tried this for the first time for fun, I was listening to this song and thought it could be cool to play along with, so I just gave it a try, by ear because couldn't find any tab.

Finding the notes was fairly easy. Playing while listening to the music in my headphones however, I'll need some more practice with that, cause I could barely hear the violin which was a bit confusing and made me do some more mistakes than I would otherwise.

But like for something I just started practicing just now, without a tab, I'm not too unhappy, I mean I needed a lot more time to get the hang of a new tune not long ago so yeah there's some kind of progress. 




I just hope it won't say copyright thingy cause I'm playing along with it, don't wanna have to edit the video again to find a way around it. 
I changed the strings of my violin like 2 days ago, they are still very cheap ones for now but at least they are new, they ring better so it's easier to get a sound out of them, I can bow more lightly 



Restring the violin was fairly easy btw.

Ha, I've always seen you on the forums, but I never knew you could make very good art!

I need to check people's profiles more often!
