June 26, 2012 at 9:51 PMI love to play. Practice, even detache strokes on open strings, is a pleasurable experience for me. That is, once I begin. It makes perfect sense. I experience this similar sensation with other activities that I thoroughly enjoy once commenced. But with violin, the pressure, nay resistance against motion is especially pronounced. Perhaps the physics of sound itself creates a force field. Perhaps it is my ego that forms a barrier knowing full well that it will be shattered the moment my bow grazes the strings. I am not certain, but as for analysis, it is only as useful as we make it, and I have some practicing to do.
