Today at my high school we had college students playing for us. I immediately took notice of the first violin sitting in first chair. His bow arm and his left hand seemed to relaxed. He used spiccato and it seemed that his whole wrist would bounce along with the bow. He left hand was so relaxed that vibrato looked so simple and it sounded swell. His bow changes were flawless, barely noticeable. How did he do this? How can you be so relaxed? Compared to him my bow hand/wrist and my left hand both are death chokes.
