My fingertips have become achy from playing violin. It could be technique, but I strive to keep the left hand fingers light, and my teacher does not see an obvious cause. I have found that Evah strings are really hard on the fingers and Dominants, with the lower string tension are much more finger friendly. I have been using Dominants for the past few years and am interested in trying strings with even lower tension to see if it helps.
Can anyone make a recommendation? Is there a table that shows string tension for various brands of strings?
PS, regarding my fingers, I took 2 months off, and got acupuncture treatment. The fingers are better but still a bit sensitive.
