About Violin: Six Lessons With Yehudi Menuhin missing parts (via Youtube)
Does anyone has missing parts of violin 6 lessons by Yehudi Menuhin. I've been self practicing for a while to get better posture and tone by follow every instructions in Menuhin's tutorials video clips via Youtube and it gets better everyday. I wondered if anyone has a completed version of parts 4 (Right hand playing),5 (Left hand playing) and 6 (Left and right hand coordination) or should I buy a book version of this lessons. Thanks for helps and sorry for my bad English writing.
Here the sample link of Violin six lessons by Yehudi Menuhin

The book is amazing, especially the chapters on bowing, where Menuhin had the most problems.
I saw all of the videos on Utube years ago - shame if they are down. However, as Adrian said, you really can get a lot of the info from the original book. That said, it has taken me many years to understand parts of it - in particular what may be the most interesting, the action of the left thumb (without an SR). It finally makes sense!
I have not Elise's patience!
LOL! I see my post was a bit ambiguous. I didn't mean to say I spent 9 years working on the book but on playing without an SR (much of that time was related to tweaking it, not making it possible).
As much as I would love to take Menuhin's advice about set-up, I find it much more fruitful to study Tossy Spivakovsky's set-up.
Thanks a lot for great suggestions, I've searched everywhere for his DVD but end up with only his book and I think I'll order one. If anyone can track the seller of his DVD version that will be so helpful. I've practice his exercises everyday for 4 months now and it helps me a lot, his teaching free me from my old vision to the violin, never felt so free so relax like this before. Or if you guys could suggest me an alternative bow hand teaching that's can related or nearly the same to his exercises it will be wonderful with all due respect.
Paul you can find them second-hand on videotape, then you can have these digitized. For example, googling for [menuhin six lessons "vhs"] I got this result:
Wow this is what I need thank you Jean. But so sad all items I found not shipping to Thailand TT.
