Finger Flexibility for Smooth Bow Changes

Learn how to train your fingers to be flexible for the best and smoothest bow changes possible. Your fingers need to be comfortably together rather than spread for lessened tension. The tip of your pinky should be on top of the stick. Practice while applying more pressure than usual to develop the timing and correct feeling. Exaggerate the movement when working on this technique so that the movement will come by itself after much practice. Your right elbow should lead the motion. Practice this exercise with a pencil or other appropriate object while doing other things for maximum practice time.
