so after watching many videos my teachers advise i can now hold the violin bow somehow correctly bit.but its hard to move my wrist flexible more relaxed it feels like my wrist is not moving its feels like it has blocked with a bandage or sometihing like that my teacher didn't pay much attention to the smooth bow hold .what should i do?
we should skype again. Also, my Forum post Guerilla interviews has videos of three excellent players And I specifically ask two of them about their bow holds. Nice up close video of them playing too so you can see it in action. Let me know.
"Please play some wrong notes, so that we know that you are human" - said to Jascha Heifetz.
I've noticed in many videos of great players that the bow stick rocks from one side to the other as the bow goes up and down.
Stick toward the player at the frog, hair edged away from the player (underneath plane of the hair, like a ski base)....Flat in the middle, stick directly over the hair... stick toward the scroll at the tip, hair edged toward the player.
It's done in such a subtle way that i'm not sure if it's a conscious twist of the player or a subconscious twist just from the innate movement of the wrist as it moves up and down.
