I cut as much dead time out of the video as I could from a 15 min practice session.
I need some feedback on a good left wrist/arm position for playing on the E string.
If you don't want to watch the whole thing here is are the time keys:
Practice on part B of King of the Fairies.
Time = 0: Bar 1; Time = 1:11 Bar2; Time = 1:45 Bar 3; Time = 3:11; Bars 2 & 3; Time = 4:40 Different wrist position; Time = 6.03: Bars 1, 2, and 3.
I think you moved your left arm into a good position around the 3.15 mark, where you straightened and pushed your wrist out slightly, you instantly started sounding clearer. Maybe push your elbow a little further under the violin (towards your bowing hand) and see if that gets a more comfortable note, I believe its normal to forget basics when your brain is tuned into learning new tunes....as soon as you remembered, you looked and fixed and you got back there!...good luck
