An Old Fogey Learning Violin...
As I have mentioned here before, I started studying violin in early-mid-2016, and started with the ViolinLab course not long thereafter.  However, even though I thought I was making decent progress, various circumstances caused me to give up the effort altogether at the end of 2016, and I didn't even open my instrument case again until this spring, at which time I made another try.

Back in 2016, I started a YouTube channel, Old Fogey Music, with which I planned to document my progress weekly.  Obviously, that went dormant as well, and I'm now starting to post new progress videos, although I only plan to upload every month or so this time around.  If you want to go back and look at all my early efforts, feel free to do so; I'll include a link to my latest video in the first comment, and continue updating this thread each time I post another one.

Schindler's list duet with my son
It is always a pleasure to share music together.  I am blessed to be able to play the piano for my son almost every day.   This is us playing Schindler's list together.

My Violin Journey
First of all, I just want to say that this is definitely the best community on the internet! I'm so grateful for everyone's amazing feedback and encouragement, it makes this adventure so much more enjoyable. 

I also loved this concept of posting videos of myself playing (never done that before). This really helps to keep my motivation up to learn the next song and push on. So that got me thinking, maybe I'll use this as like a progress journal and post updates of my progress in the same thread (that way I wont push other people's threads down) 

It would be interesting to see how this goes in a year time! 
Thank you for everyone whose travelling this journey with me!

November 3rd! Brand new Violin Lab!
Finally! Can't wait for you to see the new Violin Lab. Still fixing little things, but November 3rd is the date for relaunch. And as with anything in the tech world, there may be bugs. Fingers crossed that all goes smoothly

O Come, O Come Emmanuel (slightly changed)

Hi Everyone,

First a big thank you to Timothy who took it upon himself to learn the first version that I posted a couple of days ago.  Because of your fabulous playing I have tweaked that version, Timothy.  Not huge changes.  mostly the tempo and and stretching out a couple of notes and I think this version sounds a little cleaner a little smoother wen compared to the first.  

Let me know what you all think, your feedback is always fabulous.  Thanks in advance.

HI Timothy,

We all hope you are able to post your progress in learning Emmanuel.  It will be interesting to hear the difference between the two keys.  Looking forward to your next video post.

Bach Sonata IV, Allemande
I love Bach's music. I feel unworthy of playing it. Bach must be played with a keen ear, listening closely to the intonation. I always feel that I let Bach down when I don't clearly define the chords his notes outline. Anyway, here is my first try at the Allemande. I promise when I return from my getaway trip to Vegas I will work on getting the notes better in tune and also work on better phrasing. Please feel free to comment.

Chromatic Fingerings Tutorial
Beth, there a couple of areas I struggle (struggled) with presently, and the perfect way to overcome them I suspected was a practice partner. One was fast chromatic scales. But today, I discovered the Chromatic Fingerings tutorial, and it is just absolutely perfect! It is functionally perfect! Thank you so much!
