I'm new to learning spiccato (a couple of months) and still have trouble getting good tone on fingered notes (especially on the A string). I always hear a 'chirp' instead of a solid note.
Open strings ring nicely but no matter how much I try to adjust (sounding point, bow contact point, bow height from string, amount of movement in bow arm, finger flexibility), I just can't get rid of the chirp and it's driving me nuts.
