I've started this new thread as it seems the previous one has run its course.
I came across this exercise on youtube which shows in action what I was trying to describe in writing - I just knew that someone else would have thought about this idea before me!
Parallel or 'Straight' Bowing Trick for Violin - YouTube
Video for fingers lightly brushing against wall exercise for straight violin bowing
So, the question for me as a complete beginner is this: do techniques such as this work effectively i.e. if one practices this exercise for X number of times will the 'memory' of the action involved be retained when you play in a 'normal' setting?
As I'm writing this message I think the answer is becoming clear.
