New teacher, New Bow hold?Technique and Practicing: Identifying a new how hold taught by a new teacher.
From Sarah Zhang
requires me to hook my index finger around the stick, but all my other fingers are curled and my thumb does not go through the space betweens the hair and the stick. I have noticed it is slightly higher than the Galamian, but only by a touch. Can anyone help me identify this bow hold?
From Trevor JenningsIs your bow hand flat? i.e. the back of the hand is more or less parallel with the forearm.

From Kitty JinggaIt's not where or how the index finger rest on the bow, but rather where the index finger rest in correlation with the thumb that matters.

From Sarah ZhangMy hand is not parallel to my arm. I was instructed to lead with the wrist. And my index finger is is just a few millimeters away from the thumb. The thumb rests in between the index and middle finger , but closer to the index side
