New fiddling developments, continued...

Posted by fiddlepogo on Friday, June 20, 2008

I forgot...
one key thing about "finding my way back" to a good tone
and feel is this:

I've noticed that every time I pick up the fiddle, I start bowing too hard and heavy...
like with major arm muscle groups...
and recently, I've been remembering to "lighten up" much more quickly, and bow with less effort and pressure, and probably using
more finesse with the wrist and fingers.

Hi Michael-here are a few "tips"!


Sit comfortably with your back straight and at the edge of your chair

Let gravity be your friend-what goes down will have the energy to come back up with out much effort from you!

Light soft bows

Where do you live by the way?
Have a good one fiddling!
