Can someone explain annoying phenomenon this to me? Ex. Playing the Bach Chacconne; first beat of first full measure; D, G, B flat, open E...One "rolls" the bow from B flat to the open E...and sometimes the string squeeks. By sometimes, I of course, mean nearly all the time, as though that horrible squeeking sound is more reliable than the sound of an open E, which ultimately yields insanity if attempted long enough. This had never been a problem for me before; that is to say, I don't think it's anything I'm doing. Yet, I have recently changed out two strings in an attempt to fix the problem and it hasn't worked. Anyone have some insight? Thanks,
