any honest feedback would be greatly appreciated.
You have this interesting "flying pinkie" going in both hands. My guess is that it originates in one hand, but gets unconsciously mirrored in the other hand. I'd bet that the straight, stuck-out pinkie causes tension in both hands.
I'm not an expert violinist, but I can talk to you about some of the problems I've had to overcome. It's tempting to rush into more advanced techniques like vibrato, but you should stay focused on the basics such as straight bowing. I also had a similar problem with my right hand pinky and to some extent my left pinky too. It doesn't seem like a big deal at first but will really hinder your progress later.
Way to go Nick, nice playing!
Have you looked for any jams in your area? You'd be looking for a slow jam, but you can learn a lot about the music going to a regular one too. Just jump in and play. It's a really friendly community and very helpful to newbies!
thank you all so much! this is gold! I am very appreciative and will be considering all of the information above for quite some time.
