Maybe it's because I'm currently in the midst of taking care of two-week-old twins (boy and girl), but my thoughts have turned to "tips" and "sure-fire" methods. When you want kids to sleep in the middle of the night, you'll try just about anything that someone writes about, especially if they say it's guaranteed to work!
I won't make a guarantee, but I do have a very useful "safety move" or method for starting notes super-quietly at the frog. It's also useful for making really smooth and quiet bow changes there.
This video shows you how. I have another one I'm planning on making about bow shakes as well, because both problems revolve around the same concept. Let me know if this helped you with your "crunchy frog"!
