I’ve given myself one year to master the violin.

As an adult beginner, I should be playing Twinkle Twinkle; instead, I'm playing Paganini's 24th caprice.

what the #$&*% is going on? from Danielle

My husband’s skills on the violin are like magic.  I don’t mean they are magical in a beautiful artistic way, I mean they are not based in logic.  He can play these crazy arpeggios that go way up high in the stratosphere of the violin, practically sightreading them, slowly but PERFECTLY in tune.  Then seconds later I’m hearing all kinds of varieties of simple notes in third position.  ??????   The inconsistencies are mind boggling!  Sometimes I think he is purposely screwing with my mind.

It’s like a child that can’t feed himself without smearing mashed carrots all over his face, but then he can somehow balance a saltshaker perfectly on it’s corner.

Video evidence coming soon.

More to come…….

    Danielle, you should be proud of this six months old baby. He is already playing in 5th and 7th position!!

    Yes, Danielle, I can relate to the salt shaker comparison — he’s “that type” if you know what I mean — 🙂

    Mistake — somehow my comment showed up from RRV regarding RRV, when it should have been JRV regarding RRV — not sure how that happened — ;]
