I just managed to sound out Ashokan Farewell all by my very own self, in about ten minutes. Mind you, the people on YouTube sound infinitely better than I do; mine still needs a lot of work in terms of intonation and phrasing. But I figured out all the notes!
During my last lesson, after I'd copied a set of notes Charlene had just played for me, she said, "I love the way you sound things out." That's about all I'm good at, fiddle-wise, but I sure enjoy it!
