I have a bowing excercise that is asking me to play spiccato at the tip. It is mainly 16th notes with accents on the 1st and 3rd beat (making it even more challenging) - the first note seperate bowing then by twos they are attatched dd_dd_d_d. due to the "hooked" type bowing it makes it even more challenging. I can execute middle bow sp. fine, but find that I have no control when doing it at the tip. Furthermore, I can bearly hear the notes (mostly bow noise). it is suppose to be forte and in some cases fz, I have no clue how to practice or establish a clear sound with Sp. at the tip..any suggestions?
