Looking for advice on the occasional bow bounce and also there are times I can't find the correct "string".  This is now about 1 month of playing. Any help is appreciated so I can improve

There are so many nice things about your playing that I am surprised that you have only been playing for 1 month. 🙂
Great job.
A tip for the bouncing bow is to use a bit less bow on the bow changes.

I think maybe because I originally started playing as a teen even though I stopped after '69? Must be stored muscle memory?

Thanks for the suggestion. Another question is when playing a whole note for example when I'm bowing it doesn't sound full but rather almost like a whisper. Should I apply more pressure to the bow for a full sound? 

 

Thanks for your ideas & help  🙂
