I carefully watched everyone's vibrato at my orchestra class (we were doing string quartet groups) and I payed extra attention to the best violist and the concertmaster's vibrato. They sound really good! One question, I've seen Prof V (Todd's video on youtube as well as the masterclass's video, they always teach that your first knuckle (the joint closer to the finger tip) should collapse and rebound and it's important to have it super soft. I did not see this with any of their fingers. Am I missing something? My knuckles will not bend like that when it's on the string, i can do it say on the table, but when i have to do it on the violin, it doesn't work. Any advice?
