  1. I personally got the sheet music on music There was a small fee of under $5 for it. You can easily get this music also to download this way.

  2. i dont read music.. i just started playing this week, i do know the notes though, is there a place where i can see the finger placements to this song?
    i started violin class.. but i really wanna start doing this song.. any help bud?

  3. Hi Juan. Check out my violintutorpro site for videos on how to read music and more lesson tips. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have videos on there that will walk you through the different finger placements on the violin.

  4. Thank you for this video. It is very well done, very clear. Also, you really make the violin sound well. It’s a pleasure to listen to you.

  5. I got it easy but what I didn’t is then you’re putting your 4th finger on G string for the intro, I just can’t reach it and it ruins my play ๐Ÿ˜›

  6. This might be stretching it a bit. I am blind and learning the violin, so I don’t read music. I am trying to translate this in to such a way that I could write it out to memorize and then play. For example, at the start you say, a low two fingers on g, and that’s perfect! But as the video continues it becomes unclear to me as to what fingers are on what strings. As I said, this might be a stretch, but is there any way you could explaine this to me like that so i can learn this? Even just in a email would make my me very grateful! I am wanting to learn this to play for someone very special to me as a surprise. Thank you for taking the time to read this, and I hope you can help ๐Ÿ™‚
