Just learned it this morning. I have been practicing my sight reading (on mandolin so that my brain isn’t worrying about bowing technique). My improvement in sight reading is allowing me to learn melodies much more quickly.
Thank you, Marg! I try to focus on the positives, but my inner critic is extremely noisy. Jason does such a good job hammering home the message of celebrating small wins. I know my intonation has improved markedly since I began this journey. Some days are better than others….
Your playing is lovely! And once again, I’ve found another song to add to my list from this wonderful community! I always practice a song by plucking on the violin first as well (I don’t have a mandolin on hand, unfortunately), because the squeaky bowing is so distracting when you’re trying to learn something new.
Keep it up, and I look forward to seeing your progress!
