I hope this works. If not I apologize for being computer illiterate
I figured those who were posting their video's were getting good feedback and getting better. So here is my first video, with a cheap Camcorder I got a Wally world. I can see right off the bat that I need to work to staighten out my bowing ( A LOT ) and it appears I really need more sleep. Didn't realize I looked so bad.
Oh well, anyway. I am open for any and all constructive feedback.
Thanks in advance
That was the first I noticed was the bowing. I couldn't see your shoulder but from the movement of your shirt I can see that you are moving your shoulder to bow up and down. Onlky use your shoulder to cross strings and use your wrist more when you bow. Watch Mad_Wed video and you will see her wrist is very flexible and her shoulder barely moves. I like the last part there you enjoyed doing that and it showed.
Although I use to train horses and am probably am in the weight range for a Jockey, at 6' 1 I think I might be a little too tall.
I am going to have to do some mirror time to see if I can work on using my wrist more. I may have to accept the bowing to a degree as I shattered my right forearm a few years ago ( yes, got thrown from a young horse ) and have a steel plate in my arm and some wrist damage. But we are going to work on it. Who knows maybe playing will be my physical therapy.
