New Video! “Yesterday” by Lennon/McCartney – (Electric Violin/Loop Cover)


I used a volume pedal to create an organ-like effect while setting up the first loop of “Yesterday” by John Lennon/Paul McCartney. For the second loop in the song, I used an octave-below effect to create a bass line on the Yamaha silent electric violin. After playing a loose version of the melody, I improvised a solo over the form of the song. Finally, I created a new electric violin loop as a vamp to close the song, using also the “octave up” feature and a distortion pedal.

Now, give me YOUR feedback! Feel free to leave a comment below :)

The (not so?) funny insults I receive about my violin playing

If you’re tired of fighting with your inner critic, know this:
It’s common for musicians of all ages and abilities to feel anxious and//or have self-doubting thoughts.
I and many of my adult students and colleagues struggle with insecurities. If this applies to you, you’re far from alone.
