Pierre, I wasn't clear in my question: I'm referring to the normal angle of 90 degrees between the hair and the string and whether that ever deviates from 90 degrees in a smooth fashion. Of course if it deviated too much you would contact the adjacent string. I tried different hair tightness, no difference.
Yes, the problem is in the downward movement from the frog...the first 2-3 inches that is dominated by movement of the upper arm. I don't know if I'm pushing down too much because my arm is still not in good shape or what. Obviously by the frog is the least comfortable position at the start. I'm going to spend more time on short strokes at the frog with 1. just fingers/wrist action to get them looser 2. regular action with the upper arm.
I think it will come around as long as I'm more careful in working the problem out before moving onto something else. I will stop fussing and see what daily practice over the next month will accomplish.
