Howdy y'all, it's been a while! (2014, I wanna say?) I'm back to playing violin since I've just graduated high school and have some free time again 😀
Aside from the obvious intonation issues, hitting other strings, and not being able to keep the bow straight, is there anything else I should be working on? (I may or may not have tried to play with the fourth finger in this one...if so, sorry!)
Welcome back! 😀
I'd say your bow seem to be moving fairly straight. The little bit we see of your bowhand I would suggest you work on your bow hold. Your pinkie need to be sorted out and strenghtened so you can keep it curved and still hold the weight of the bow. Find exercises for bow hold. I found pinkie push-ups a really good one.
Heyyy - welcome back Panda-P - been a LONG time !
Real happy to see you back on your fiddle journey ! Indeed, we last chatted here on the forum way back in 2014 - https://fiddlerman.com/forum/breakroom/happy-birthday-hannah/ - and of course you were a great host to The Traveling Fiddle... THANK YOU for that !!!!
Nice to have you back with us !
Oh - and on your graduation - well done !
I seriously recommend not copying my mistakes. D'oh -
Please make your own, different mistakes, and help us all learn :-)
