Hello all, ive got a few questions about what i believe is referred to as 'colle' bowing.
Ive gotten the motions down and everything, and my fingers are quite flexible from playing piano before ever touching the violin so it came fairly easy to me, but i'm just curious as to why in most of the videos ive seen of soloists preforming i cant notice it very often.
I guess i just want to know when this bowing should be used aside from the obvious answer of 'when you want your bow changes to sound smooth', or 'when it sounds good' considering i see it used so rarely. I also am open to the possibility that its hard to notice small movements of the fingers in youtube videos and the professionals may use it lightly but often, however i figure its better to ask just in case there is something I should be aware of :)
