HI

You might want to review this YouTube. 

There is not any law about wrist position but it definitely affects finger placement.

When you come to a fork in the road, take it.

Really great video, again, Chris.

Your bow rosin is new and hard to get the sheen off the surface. Here's what I do with mine, I use a piece of sand paper to scuff up the surface and leave the loose powder on the rosin cake when I run the bow across it.

What is the trick to getting a jpg file to upload here, I do what it say's and like the last file's I attached had to be uploaded in a different post. Now I have to do the same thing with these picture's.  red_cursing

Way to go Chris. I especially like the way you hold the bow when repositioning your hold for the video. You'll soon feel comfortable with it and be able to relax your hand at which time you will not be getting hand cramps. It's still SUPER new for you. I like that you are keeping your fingers together. Just make sure that you have at least a slight bend in both your thumb and pinky.
I really like your videos. Thanks
