@Fiddlestyx I just realized I was tilting too much..you are right.. it was getting scratchy.. If I recall.. I was bowing super super flat months and months ago.. I got a tip to bow at an angle.. and before you know it .. I have been sideways bowing.. anyway.. I am changing my ways.. and getting good tone now.
Who know what my next week's problem with be with the violin... but you know.. I will figure this thing out.. oh yeah.
Vibrato Desperato.... Desperately seeking vibrato
This is what Daniel is suggesting:
"First trick: You no doubt notice that the open strings are a little louder/stronger than fingered notes and they also have a bit more "sting" to their sound. If you put your finger down on the string at the nut.. Where it crosses the nut and not the vibrating part.. and experiment with sliding your finger onto the string just a little ways, you can find a place where your finger damps the string just a little without changing the pitch. - See more at: https://fiddlerman.com/forum/t.....spPostForm"
