Just watched Fiddlerman's latest video on protecting left hand (and right hand) fingers using special gloves, shot with his friend Eddie's help. Absolutely hilarious! If you only watch one FM video, make it this one!  Very cleverly done, makes you think Eddy is really playing the violin with gloves on!   LOL

The sad part is that he really is. Honestly. Eddie is actually a real fine violinist and we often play gigs together. He is a real joker.

Now Pierre and Eddie just need to find a way to wire up those gloves so the rest of us can play like that!

This guy is hilarious,hehe.Great video

Funny thing though,during the winter i actually tried playing wearing fingerless gloves myself,because my fingers are way too sensitive to low temperatures...cold fingers=cranky playing.Left hand was a disaster,but i had no problem with the bowing hand..so i managed to keep that one warm at least!

Also i noticed that wearing some sort of thin cuff-glove thingie,the type that just covers the palm with a hole for the thumb,made of thin soft material,made my sliding from first to third position much easier...or maybe it was just counter-balancing  a sloppily over-varnished violin  neck?Ah well.

Oh funny funny.. ha ha.. That was great..

I played a lot of violin today..and I have super sore fingers from pressing too hard and the return of the death grip.

Love a bit humor after long practice sessions.
