I found that the hair added to his conflicted genius/tempermental child molester je ne sais quoi. But thats just me. Excellent playing.

That was pretty freakin' insane. He even had a rock-ish sound to his violin playing! Shwank.

spiccato isn't too hard, however i think the technique he's doing has a lot more vertical bounce than spiccato to create the rough percussion effect. so i have to say i'm impressed, the more force you put in the more the bow bounces back, so he really has a lot of control and skill. especially to keep it even and consistent for so long.
also, i don't think the he desperately needs a hair cut. he's in a freaking bar playing 80's music. was he supposed to dress up and slick his hair back? it doesn't matter that he looked like a bum or had bad posture, it was okay for the low-key chill situation he was performing in.

anyway, i think this is pretty dam good, considering he probably came up with the arrangement himself. it had a lot of character and he utilized lots of unique sounds a string instrument can make to bring it as close to the originals as possible. i think he's great.

THAT right there made my day. I play viola and I was shocked by how good this guy is. I wonder where he got the music. He could make a fortune just playing on the street with a tin can. That thing would be filled with money faster than you could say "This guy's so good, I'm going to give him a twenty."

okaaaaay, Ravenhaft, you're taking this waaaaay too seriously

yeah, so his posture needed some work, but so what if he didn't look very put together? he plays well

and woohoo, he needs to get a new bow. whats the big deal? its his money, let him ruin a bow for the sake of makin music the way he wants to.

if that doesnt work for you, fine. don't listen to him. simple as that

Mostly I'm impressed at his bow control. Of all the things I'm good at with violin, spiccatto is not one of them, after a measure or two the bouncing starts to escalate until the bow wants to bounce right out of my hand. I was insanely inpressed by him control of the spiccatto during "Smooth Criminal," even if he does have to buy a new bow every month.

You guys think he is nice [scoff] sure the tune was nice but 1)horrible posture 2)That bow is ruined 3)he looked like a godd*mn bum and 4)The violin's value plummeted as soon as he looked at the noble instrument
