@pfish It was this thread. It just didn't show up in the right place in it. I was talking about the vid that you posted about Hadley Castilles :) I was surprised that he was playing well over the fingerboard. 

Seen it all. Done it all. Can't remember most of dunno ..... What was I saying???? facepalm

I got into it with Rosined Up in another thread regarding even tempered vs well tempered etc... lol

I was comenting on his particular style is useful for only his particular style where as the common formal education tries to teach a style that is more universal. I didnt connect what I was saying with your comment. appologies.

No appologies needed, pfish. I'm with you and I've read that thread, agreed with what you said, but just did not make any post because a while back there were discussion about those tunings, scales, pentatonics and so on already.

It was my plan that sometimes in the near future when I will be proficient enough, I will  try to post some demo vids of several tunes with each one played in a different tuning systems, none is 12 TET, just to show the versatility and power of the violin in adaptation to different systems.

cheers

Just exactly what is the proper bow hold ?,,, IMO, it's what you're comfortable with, unless you're playing in a symphony, then you want to look correct and traditional.

I think there are too many critic's out there that want to tell other's how to hold the bow and can't do it themselves.

I think "correct" really boils down to:

 

A.  You don't drop the bow (or the violin)

B.  You can play what you set out to play
