Been about 18 months of serious practice now. Probably 4 hrs a week if I’m being honest. Focusing on Grade 3 classical, jazz standards and solo parts for my electronic stuff. Theory is on the back end, can’t write anymore but being able to read it is enough for now. This recording is as raw as it gets: straight into the computer mike, no effects, no backing instruments, not even reverb. To top it off, I’m playing the 4th finger, no open strings. I maintain: if you can master solo violin (I never will), you’ve hit the peak.
