Intonation: You + You + You + You = extreme difficulty!

Intonation on violin is hard enough when you're alone. With piano I find it's easier because you can hear the chords.
Playing chords is even harder because you can tell quicker that someone's out of tune.
Playing a quartet composed of you, you, you, and you is... well... extremely hard.
With minimal tweaking, this is how I apparently sound in quartet form. Surprisingly, better than I had expected! Not perfect, but still pretty good!
Very nice! The four of you match vibrato so well :-)
Just curious - did you use a click track on any/all of the recordings?
Wow! Amazing! One of my favorite video game music. That is a Gagliano right?
p.s. I've always wondered, how tall are you?

Karen: I actually did this one without a click track, but when I collaborate with others I do tend to time things out more carefully. I was able to anticipate myself enough to not need one though. Thanks for your comment!

Hi Emmanuel - yes it's a Gagliano :) And for your purposes, I'm 5'9. Average American!
