There's nothing better than a cold beer and the warm soothing sound of a violin.
[Image Can Not Be Found]first beat of each measure gets the down bow. regular saw strokes for the bowings, emphasis on the first and second beats, count the quarters as eights and the eights as sixteenths. eights are counted 1 and 2 and... and sixteenths are 1 e and a, 2 e and a.
the pickup measure and first measure are 1 e for the quarter, and a for the eith notes then the last four eithnotes are 2 e and a. repeat. so the 1 e is a down bow, and is an up, a is a down, 2 is up, e is down, and is up and a is down, the next measure is an up bow start. So in order to maintain a down beat driven sound you will have to add a corrective slur to those measures. 2 consecutive notes on the same string is a good place to add one. Most of the measures work out to down bow on the first beat however.
