Hi Tim @Timothy Smith ... I know the butterfly fairly well and this is starting to come together.

I would have no idea how to get the intonation right on a violin given the scale length and no frets..

One thing I would suggest is to practice against a metronome.

All the good players are locked into the pulse even if they are bit off in other departments. I don't know if you already do this but it gives you nowhere to hide.  Otherwise the tricky bits will catch you out time and time again. Set it slow at first and keep notching it up until it's at tempo.

I used to do this with mandolin to fairly good effect.
