I am trying to work through Simon Fischer's Basics... Trying..
Anyway, I'm about to practice lesson 63 (Attacks). When it says start from above the string, does he mean with the bow moving in an upward/downward direction before it makes contact with the string?
The wording is many times ambiguous, but I am mostly confused because my teacher has stated multiple times that the bow never moves until it's in contact with the string. She even said the other day that it's a violin playing cardinal rule, to have the bow on the string before sounding a note.
What am I missing here?
