July 4, 2012 at 4:11 AMThis evening me and my friends had a jam session! I was on violin, and then my friends were on guitar, ukelele, and keyboard. The song was 'Hallelujah,' and I wrote down the chord progressions and played the melody. When we recorded it, the violin sounded good in the background. When we went outside, a firework exploded right at the end, which was a perfect ending! All in all, I had fun pulling out my violin and just playing for fun with my friends. It was a nice break from intense practicing fifth position. (That's what I'm working on in private lessons.) Either way, it was a great, musical Tuesday night.
