Ok, so I'm playing a piece by Vivaldi with my orchestra for the christmas concert, and this piece is very fast, and the 1st violin part is basically straight 16th note passages, I would like to know any techniques or tips that you guys have to play very quickly and in tune without tiring myself out, or maybe any warm up activities to get my fingers moving fast. Thanks in advance!
Fiddlerman has a video on learning to play fast: CLICKY!
FM You mention using too much bow which slows things down. However in very short bow strokes (back and forth) how is it possible to maintain consistent pressure and bite on the strings. Forearm? Wrist? Shoulder? Other?
I often find myself "skating" over the fast passages barely sounding the strings and dropping volume where I really don't want to ????
When you come to a fork in the road, take it.
