After finding myself experiencing "squeaking" and that "shrill" sound, I started a web search to see if I could solve the problem. I found this video. Two things struck me: bow holding & how it ought to line up on the fingers, and pinky placement and the problems improper balance can create. For the more experienced individuals here: is this video accurate? Should I assume that playing in is way is a good way to go?
Video below, and thanks in advance!
Hey Sone, the app popped up but no video (tried it half a dozen times,,, nada).
One note to keep in mind, and although I'm not a more experienced player, I've been focused on the fundamentals like an MF'r, lol. One cause of squeeky strings, as FM pointed out in one of his vids, is a something less than perpendicular bow to the strings. If the bow is angled at all, it tends to slide horizontally with the strings instead of grabbing perpendicularly across the strings. This often times causes a squeek or squeel. Might that be the case??? My $0.02
