    My name is Eric Baudouin, and I am from the Seattle area, I enjoyed watching Vivien’s videos, specially the one about double stops. I was wondering if Vivien would have recorded a video about the 5th double stops, I am still amazed by the various technics and would love to see how Vivien is mastering those one.

    Thanks a lot.
