Recently I receive quite a bit of comment saying that I'm too scare to dig into the strings, it sounds like I'm too afraid my bow or my violin will be broken that I'm having my bow floating on the strings.
Then today I tried to play again and ask my friends to listen, this time I give full force to play, to the extent that I feel like I'm crushing every note and constantly giving scratchy attacks, and they liked it so much, saying that it sound much more punchy and clear. Clear? I thought I was playing so brutally that I couldn't even listen clearly if I'm producing a good tone.
Maybe it's because of my violin, or something else?
