Being a bit lazy, and because too much is way worse than too little with my rosin, I don't always apply it every time I play. Today I was pushing it - both with too little rosin and too much laziness.
However, what I found was that I had to be very careful with my bow speed and contact weight to get a good sound. Likewise for spiccato - it had to hit perfectly to not glide.
Obviously this is not a good idea for a performance but have I stumble on a bowing training method?
