Hi , im kind of "new" here but not really new cos i rarely post anything . Anyway im having trouble with left hand support like thumb placement and base index stuck or stick to the neck . Also i will like to clear a doubt in my mind about vibrato . Recently , im taught to free the base index support from the violin neck in order free the hand for vibrato . however, i run into problems , thumb slipping and cant really support violin without base index . For your info , im shoulder restless and chinrest is kreddle . so without vibrato my support will be left hand , jaw and chin only . i find this really comfortable and shoulder restsss is never my friend.
This problem is driving me insane ... i really really appreciate some help from people who know how to support violin with left hand and yet able to do vibrato .
Thanks so much in advance . :)
