    As a mad-keen third age violinist, I am now working through my book of Lully, 'Vingt Morceaux'. Rondeaux, Minuets & Bourrees. Gorgeous. But I've always had trouble with timing and I'm find it very hard getting my head round notes inegales, hemiolas et al. Plus my little finger's too weak to trill with! Ah well ...

    No worry - you are in a good company of most of the otherwise famous composers..

    I am playing Mendelssohn's violin concerto.

    Right now, I'm working on beer #2.

    Oh wait, you wanted me to talk about STRINGS? In that case, I'm plodding along with some simplified Bach Regadoun and Minuets for my string workshop.

    I've taken a little break from the Chaconne for now. As someone mentioned in another thread, some works are more long-term projects and this is one of those works for me.

    A while ago member Aleazk posted this video of this nice guitar transcription of a Ravel prelude for piano.



    I managed to learn this piece and transcribe the above version (which is actually significantly different than the Yates transcription the performer in the video credits as using) in around 4 days.

    Lately I've been also working on a Matthew Dunne piece called 'Appalachian Summer'. A little known piece I very much enjoy.

    Duke of Norfolk or St Paul's Cathedral - a Division on a Ground published by Playford, 17th century. Gorgeous but can't play it fast enough or shift to 3rd position & above fast enough. Also the Bourrées in G major & G minor by Bach at the end of Suzuki 3: love them!

    Dvorak cello concerto. I first tried it out last year but let it slide because of time pressures, so the second movement is the only one I can manage at this stage.

    Something a little more mundane - learning thumb position on the double bass.
