Some time ago on here, maybe a couple of months ago, I made a post about a Possible problem with my G string. To me it sounded really odd.
Well, since getting my MJZ925 from Fiddlershop, and adjusting the weight of my bow on the string, speed of attack, distance from the bridge, etc. it sounds much better.
If any of you have better tricks for getting the very best sound out of your G string, I'm all ears.
You are already way out ahead because you notice this issue!
I am guilty of not playing enough on my C string, but I play much more on my G, so I don't find it as much of an issue.
My instruments have 5 strings - the C string is much thicker than the G string and even harder to get sounding nice - I still struggle with it. As the strings get lower, larger in diameter, they respond slower. There is such an obvious difference between playing my lowest vs highest string, I'm not sure I would've noticed the same with just 4 strings, but all the strings are different.
Think I'd recommend playing as much as you can on the G - there's a lot of stuff going on all at once, so you probably notice enough that your ears/brain/bowing arm & hand may just need time to work out finer details with each other. 😊
Some great tips here... have you seen this video?
I saw that Red Desert video before - the chinrest is interesting. It is deliberately filed off to enable the chin to rest on the far left edge of it for the purposes of playing the G string, hence it looks whiter than the rest. That's my position with my standard Guarneri, but improvements could be made.
