Hi folks - the title was originally What does Fischer mean by playing "Round the String" but there seems to be a bug if you submit titles containing quote marks...
A simple question, to check I'm not misunderstanding.
In Simon Fischer's tone DVD he mentions bowing "round the string" at the bow change, but very unusually for him, he doesn't define what he means by this.
Looking at what I'm doing, my upper arm rises a little at the start of the up-stroke, and falls a little at the start of the down-stroke. Is this what he means, or am I on the wrong track?
