Hello everyone! Nice to meet you. My name is Kirk and I am 28. I know I am a bit late to the show but I have always had a fascination with the violin so I bought one and started playing last week. I had my first music lesson this morning. My instructor assigned martele bowing. I am having a extremely difficult time with this assignment. I would greatly appreciate any advice! My biggest obstacle is doing this stroke with the full bow draw it isn't so bad with short strokes but long strokes I can't seem to control the tip on the up stroke past 50% travel. I have found many videos online but none of them do full strokes only partials. Thanks in advance for the help!
