I'm playing summer by vivaldi right now.
Bar 44 and 48 of 3rd movement is my problem.
I cant get the notes to sound perfect 5th in tune.
Bar 44 triple stops are D4,A5,E6 (in order)
Playing D4 & A5 is no problem as D4 is open string but A5 & E6 is always out of tune.
I have wide finger for a 6ft tall man
But i cant get both strings stopped properly
All the way down to the board
Unless i flatten my finger sideway(still out of tune)
1. Stopping 1 string fully to the board
While stopping the 2nd note as much as i can
And compensate the lack of stopping with more
Bow pressure on that slightly stopped string.
But it so difficult and i can only put so much pressure before that string sounds crushed.
Or is there something lacking on this solution?
How do i solve this?Tweet
