More melody!

Something a little prettier, its an arrangement from a great section of Thcaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet: Overture. This was a few years ago and I was testing not only my ability to quicly recognize and recreate melodies but expand on them as well. I loved making this clip except for the last note, it bothers me haha... feel free to comment guys!

  6. You're right on the last note, a lil flat. But overall, that's some damn good work. Very very close to the real thing. Makes me miss my flute.

  11. Not too shabby. I wanted to learn violin, but my parents made me learn clarinet instead. lol

    Also, you should learn some Stravinsky. Good god I love that man's work. Can you play by ear, or do you need sheet music? There's another I'd recommend to learn but I can't say if there's sheet music for it or not.

    I love stravinsky as well! The Berceuse and Finale of the Firebird is gorgeous! I can play by ear and with music, but for a composer of Stravinski's calibre I would most certainly need sheet music...I kind of want to look into his writings for the violin now...I believe he wrote a concerto.

  14. you're really good at the violin, mate. I could never get the hang of it when I was a child, so I moved on to the guitar. Wish I could play such a sweet sounding instrument.

  19. I'd have to say the Finale of the Firebird is one of my favorites. No lie, I'll die if you play that beautifully. Looking forward to hearing more, especially a Stravinsky concerto!

  20. I'm going to request the Berceuse & Finale sheet music on monday.. I should be able to get a hold of it I've performed it before with orchestra...If I can get the music I PROMISE I will record myself playing the Berceuse and Finale with an orchestral track playing behind me as soon as Friday. I'll return here with comments on whether I could secure the sheet music.
