Kerry Polka on violin: short progress video


Screen Shot 20191121 at 7.33.58 PM.png

This afternoon I learned a pretty simple tune called Kerry Polka, as you can see by the vid the entire thing is only about 30 seconds, but can be repeated and given variations for a full length song.

Also Polks's are meant to be played quite quickly and even though I felt like I was rushing a bit I didn't get anywhere near Polka speed :D

Kerry Polka

I'll work on adding variations and double stops on this and getting some of the trickier finger transitions smoother (that's the homework I've given myself for my practices this week!) and maybe if I accomplish all that up the speed a wee bit!

Nice job Julia! - Reminds me of the time period in Red Dead Redemption 2


Thanks PZ, I've never played that game, does sound a bit similar :)

Nice! I played the violin as a kid. I never did get very good at it. :)


I'm amazed at how many people say that, it seems everyone has taken up violin at some point!


I wanted to play the drums. My parents insisted on the violin, which is likely why I never took to it. :)

You make it look easy though.
