Zigeunerweisen

May 22, 2019, 5:13 PM · Hey there,

I’ve been learning Zigeunerweisen for about a month now, and I’ve made some progress on the slow bits. But because of incompetence, boredom, or a combination of the two, the fast part is killing me, specifically the sautille-ish phrases. I’m good with the pizz and harmonics, but if you have any suggestions for learning the spiccato, it would really help me out. I’ve never been great at getting my fingers to cooperate with my bow, and I want to make it sound as punctual as possible.

Thanks!

It would get more notice there and more responses. A blog post expires at the end of 1 week. We can still read it, but after 1 week, the post will no longer accept replies.
