For some odd reason I developed a squeak playing a simple waltz. I don't normally squeak at all even on the E-string. In fact the E-string was still not even squeaking.
I've been learning to keep my fingers down and I do it sometimes not even thinking about it, which is good.
I was still fingering on D string and had to play an open A and then immediately back to the same fingered note on D so I kept D fingered.
But A would squeak aweful. I thought I was brushing the D string with the bow when playing the A.
Turned out my finger was just brushing up against the A messing it totally up.
So I tucked my elbow in just a wee bit and arched my wrist just a bit more so that I came down a little better and maybe scooched the fingering of D over just a bit away from A and the squeak is gone.
This has been bugging me for a couple weeks !!!
I thought for sure I was doing something wrong with the bow and never thought to look at my fingering. Ugh.
