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.

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—

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—
