🤔... Stringy posted that, but you got my attention. (lol)
Think what is important in the video, is to not lock the pinky - and practice what it takes to get each of the 3 sections of the bow to sound the same.
You can see the pinky pressure comes into play when bowing near the frog - probably one of the reasons why I prefer a lighter bow.
What doesn't help anyone in the video - Niall has developed a weird kink in his 1st pinky joint. 😉
Thanks for posting about this! I still try to keep in mind that I can exploit the natural sound property differences of bowing at the tip vs. the frog area - and I need to work on bowing near the tip (rarely seem to go there).
Really glad you picked it up - I got as far as posting about it, but I haven't even had the energy to check & see if I can load it on my laptop, instead of my phone... I'll get around to it.
Guess it's all about 'the weather' for me, right now. I've not only been feeling 'under the weather' for this last month, but 'the weather' caused another large power outage here yesterday - not happy it's 80°F, no A/C with the generator hooked up & struggling to keep the humidity from climbing over 60% with the dehumidifier.
...still nice to get some practice in. 😊
