Ok, so I've recently decided to experiment playing without shoulder rest. Pretty good so far, the only thing thats really change is my vibrato, which I have to use wrist now. Which is fine, since I can do both arm and wrist.
Yah dah, yah dah. Onward to the real problemo
I CAN'T GO SHOULDER REST FREE UNLESS MY VIOLIN IS HITTING BARE SKIN!!!!
No matter what type of cloth I use underneath, it would still slip :( So unless I go smexy and slip one of my arm out the shirt arm wearing and remove one bra strap(slightly annoying cause my practice have guys in it(excluding the cuts one;))
Anyway, does anyone have the same problem? Not that I'm dying when I use a shoulder rest, but when I do and it get a strong/ fast vibrato part it will shake like a 9.0 earthquake.
Thanks in advanced :D
