Perhaps one of the most challenging gigs to date!

I just had a gig yesterday for a marriage proposal, (she said "YES!"). It was one I wasn't sure I should have taken because the music was difficult due to being quite different than what I usually play, and I was swamped with other gigs this past weekend as well. 

I have this thing where I learn the vast majority of non-classical music requests by ear. This was no different. I did try at one point to pass on this gig by reaching out to other violinists. The only one who wasn't intimidated by the music requests charges 3x more than I do! She is the ultimate pro. 

However, in the end, I came through and finally got myself to really try to learn the tunes, which I eventually did. It went very well, and I have realized through this experience, (if I didn't truly realize it before), that I am in fact, quite the pro myself because I achieved what so many obviously couldn't do or wouldn't take on. Feeling pretty awesome about it! :) 

Here are the songs that were requested, by the way: 

Wale ft. Usher - "Matrimony"
Juls - "Give You Love"
Sarkodie - "Me and You"
Runtown - "Mad Over You"
