I'm working on keeping the bow parallel to the bridge, and using my upper arm only to cross strings, so it's a little faulty. Any help is welcome! Enjoy!
Very good. I noticed your musicality right off the bat! Awesome... you have a way of playing that a lot of newbies don't have. I mean you seem to know it is just not sawing back and forth you are connecting it to make a song.
I think like Feret said, you are doing great and will do really well. Hopefully some of the "pros" will come a long and get you some more useful information to help you knock you next one out of the park.
Congrats to you. Thanks for posting.
Vibrato Desperato.... Desperately seeking vibrato
I was impresses that you repositioned your bow with no bounce.
Opportunity is often missed because it wears suspenders and looks like hard work.
Hi Christopher @RosinGecko
You are doing really great with the bowing, especially for 3 weeks.
It just takes practice, practice, and more practice.
I reckon that you will advance very quickly
Keep posting your progress
Thank you very much, Ferret! I'm pretty much practicing every night at the moment, and I'll keep updating!
A gold star for you! Wow, that sounded pretty dang good! Gives me something to shoot for.
Just out of curiosity--what made you decide to record in the laundry room?
Keep up the good work!
Thanks Diane I hope it inspires a little, even though I'm just starting.
To answer your question: I first learned how to play guitar in the laundry mat of my home town after dark when nobody was around. I call it my "crossroads". It's just quiet and roomy, so I can walk and think and play and learn

Neat! It seems to work well for you judging by the results. 🙂

Super job for three weeks. What gives????
Use the elbow for straighter bowing.
Thanks! (Also for your post on "The first two weeks"). I've since been working on that, and it's becoming more natural. I'm practicing it as well as my music theory by transposing scales and then playing them, paying close attention to the elbow and getting the feel for how the correct contact point feels! I Should have another video in a couple days, or at the start of next week.
Excellent job man.
One thing I would suggest, that may incidentally help with the parallel bowing, is to keep even pressure across the entire bow. I think you may be apply more pressure to the A/E strings which can make the sound different for the lower and upper strings respectively.
If that made no sense, then ignore it xD I am not good at explaining things.
Stop saying you can't do it and actually go try it... Trust me it works.
