Melodia
For Lunar New Year and Giga progress
Hi all,

Sharing a tune for Lunar New Year and my progress on Giga.  In the New Year tune, I included a little improvisation.  For Giga, I focused on measures 12 to 16 and played at a comfortable tempo with the goal of playing all the notes in tune. 🌸 Happy Lunar New Year! 🌸

Backslash ( \ ) in front of apostrophe ( ' )
Hi all,
I'm seeing a backsplash in front of every apostrophe.  Do you see that as well?

Question concerning Sevcik Op. 3 videos (thanks Beth!).  I like to play along with these at different tempos.  On the left side of the lessons, there are "Resources", "Documents" (sheet music and study guide), "External Links" (.xml document), and then "Videos" which are playable violin and piano and piano only audio.  I find playing those small video boxes to be a bit awkward while practicing and even though you can adjust tempo it sounds pretty bad slowed down.  What I have been doing:

Download .xml document.  Import .xml file into Finale, and export mp3 from finale which I bring into Anytune Pro to play around with.  This works great but it is sort of a pain.  This is a long preface to my question:

Is there an easier way to do what I'm doing?  If these "videos" are available on Soundslice that would probably work, but I can't find them there.

Minuet No. 2
So I was "putzing" around in one of my software programs while practicing violin. I captured a screen movie of the session. No matter what I do my violin just sounds scratchy because I'm too close to my mics in this small studio. 
I find this process helps me to learn the songs better. 

To make this I imported piano midi and mated it to one of my VST pianos.Two of them. One bass clef, one treble clef. The midi was free online. I had the midi violin muted so I could play along with this as a backing track.
If anyone is interested I can make only the piano backing track available in any tempo you want or both the piano and the Joshua Bell midi violin. Of course minus myself playing. I think playing along with the  VSTi violin is slowly helping me to pull in my intonation in. I'm still slightly off here and there.

I find this fascinating. I've always thought "I'd love to see these complex jazz riffs notated". Well here's one.
