I'm curious how many people learned the "make a circle with your thumb and middle finger, and put your thumb in the space between the frog and leather" technique. It was what I was taught but is apparently not the right technique. I'm having trouble getting rid of my bad habits! My teacher is teaching me to flatten the hand and lock the bow in the fleshy part of the middle finger with the thumb on the leather, relaxing the first and last finger. Just curious on how the rest of you hold your bows, and what you were taught.
