I'm going to play "Turkish March" by W.A. Mozart
So basically I just took up the challenge presented by my friend by playing "Turkish March" or...
Rondo Alla Turca
The 3rd movement from Sonata K.331
... on the violin, which is pretty challenging, considering my age. So here are my statistics of my experience on this:
Playing since: 6 or 7
But then: stopped for 2-3 years, therefore forgot everything
Continued: age 10-11
Determination: substantial... nah, more than enough
Experience with this kind of stuff:
I am familiar and can do the 2 little 1/16th notes before the multitude of chords of which I can't do (yet). There are about 5 pages worth of sheet music, but only 50% is really for the violin as obviously I can't reach the bass clef part of the grand staff, therefore putting the number of measures at 132 with a time signature of 2/4.
Question: Anyone have any suggestions aside from the "no quick way of doing it" comment and the "practice + time" comments, which I see in almost all of my questions involving learning a skill / related. I just know that there is something else to this, aside from the practice, determination, stuff like that.
Oh yeah, side note, how do you do those weird chords? They don't even look like chords (I think). Notes (6th measure) are F# and A on the E string, then E-G, and lastly F-A (no sharps or flats).
