Try hammering on the strings with the tip of your finger instead of pressing.

I think it's awesome that you're using all of your bow! That usually takes a long time for people to learn that (I still struggle) so congratulation. Very smooth, very nice. Huuuuuge improvement from the last posting!! thumbs-up

Great job! You are sounding great. I noticed that your tone sounds a tad (just a teensy) screechy when you are using the top third of your bow while making a up bow. Try and keep the pressure even on your up bow, or maybe dig in just a tad. Keep up the great work.
