I seem to have this terribly annoying tendency to slide my bow too far up to the point where I am playing almost right over the fingerboard. I start off sounding good, I feel confident, I am reading the music, playing and then it starts sounding lousy and I notice my bow is about a half inch over the fingerboard. I keep trying to focus to break this annoying habit but it keeps creeping up on me. Ugghh !! 🙂
On a brighter note I was playing "lightly row" on the G string the other morning. About a half hour later I came downstairs and someone asked, "what was that tune you were playing ?" They claimed they recognized the popular little tune. I asked how the playing was and they said " quite good". Ah... that is inspirational. If someone can recognize what I play and say it was good then I must be doing a few things right... Making progress... but I have a long way to go.
Ok I think I have the part of the answer to my frustration. i just need to focus more on my bowing and the way I position and hold the instrument. I just get frustrated with myself when i keep making the same mistakes over and over again. But I just need to relax, take a break, and keep on practicing.
