Yeah: That's exactly what was in my mind for the past few days and what I searched through this forum and some other websites on the net. I couldn't come up with an answer, though
I've seen so many times that people play multiple notes on different strings in just one bow stroke. this would sound dumb, but, how can it be done without touching the wrong strings in between? So, still an ultimate newbie in violin...(??!)
As you might have guessed, I play one note per bow stroke. I don't worry about hitting the wrong notes much. I've got used to bowing and not looking at the strings, even when placing my fingers.
Thanks for the replies in advance.
And sorry if I haven't participated in the discussions much. I usually don't know much about the matters being discussed (It's a shame, isn't it?). And I see not much use in just complimenting good performances, sorry for saying that. Anyways, I'll try to be more active soon.
Thanks, Ken. I'll surely watch it...
Actually, I'm learning with some other videos form YouTube channel "The Online Piano and Violin Tutor" and I'm still in the fingering lessons.
I'll start watching the whole set of Fiddlerman's videos just after I finish my current lessons (4 more to go :D)...
Again, this reply didn't seem necessary. Just posted to show my appreciation
Yah it's tough but doable. I ran into the same issue when learning Bachs gavotte in G minor. It's crazy and it feels like I'm trying to play a violin like an accordion. Playing the first 4 notes on two strings with one bow stroke, it's tough. And it takes a lot of brain/hand coordination. After trying to play it about 100 times I finally got the hang of it but I will have to take a peek at fiddlermans video too. Overall keep your head up, it's doable. Stay motivated!!
