May 11, 2008 at 5:46 AMI *thought* that I was going to give my bow arm focus a little break while I shifted my focus to my Cing vibrato. That is how practice started out today at least.
Instead, I found myself re-positioning my hand on the bow in a more comfortable position. I didn't think about it for quite some time. That is until I noticed how my tone was sounding better. At first, I thought it was the vibrato. When I looked at how I was holding the bow, I realized that I had "slipped" into the hand position that me teacher WANTED me to use all along.
Hmph! How did that happen? Oh well, I'm not going to look a gift horse in the mouth.
Back to practice... now if I can only vibrate my first finger on the G and C strings....
