It snowed all day yesterday...

I have never been a fan of cold weather, perhaps one day I will move south?

Yesterday was fun, I was able to get around a few more roadblocks in the bach g min adagio, I have carmel ho hos to thank for helping me get through all the frustration. Was listening to schlomo mintz play the d min sarabande and there is one passage where he sustaning notes that arent marked and it gives this really great sound with descending cords which has given me some ideas when I play bach, to play some notes maked as one notes but played as a double stop, either adding a note or sustaining a not that was just played. I also add trills and slides sometimes to keep things fun. Ive also been experimenting with some of the bach d min giga and a few parts from the bach c maj and also a bit more of paganini 5 - the chromatic notes and am just getting started on paganini 17. I know it will take years but I have to start sometime, right?

I also found this thread about chinese fiddles to be very interesting.

Other than that, is has been suggested that no violinist can compare to Heifetz... I find this completely absurd but thats just me.

Hey I was wondering, does anyone know if it is too late to vote for kelsey for pope?
