America the Beautiful Violin Lesson
Hello, this is Paul Huppert with onlinelessonvideos.com. In this lesson, we’ll be studying the famous American melody America the Beautiful by Samuel A. Ward.

Both in terms of your left hand as well as your right—
You bring in the A string—
And then we play the double stop at the end of the first measure on both the A and the D string. Likewise for the second measure—
And then bringing the fourth finger down—
Let me play those two measures for you again a little bit faster—
And then we go on to the third measure—
Here we rock over to the G string—
So there is a rocky motion in the bow arm—
Over to the G—
And then there is a slight shift up. We execute D flat with our first finger and we bring the fourth finger down, a fourth above the B flat for a harmonic effect—
Let me play a measure four for you again—
This is known as an artificial harmonic. We have a stop note which is the B flat—
And then an E flat, which is played lightly, accomplishing a harmonic. Now let's go on to the pickup into they fifth measure. We have a single note—
